ONE15 Brooklyn Sail Club (“BSC”) is located in heart of the award-winning Brooklyn Bridge Park (https://www.brooklynbridgepark.org/park) just South of the Brooklyn Bridge. The sailing school is fully integrated with the Sail Club – we are a growing sailing community with a strong formal and informal educational component. The club offers adult and teen education, cruising, and regular evening and weekend racing. Our school graduates mostly join the Sail Club to continue their sailing adventures in New York and beyond.
Our club has a new fleet of Melges 24s and J/80s - the only fleet of its kind in New York Harbor. The boats are located on easily accessible finger docks in New York’s newest marina situated next to New York Harbor. Coaches are supported by top-rated teaching materials and equipment with classroom and post sailing activities held on our newly acquired double decker floating sailing center. The Sail Club is part of a larger waterfront project in Brooklyn that includes marina operations, the Ebb & Flow bakery, Estuary restaurant, and community outreach programs.
