Sailing the Hudson River with Griffin Sailing School (GSS) is time well spent. We offer semi-private sailing instruction, with a student-to-instructor ratio of 3:1 that's the best in the industry. Our instructors love to share their sailing knowledge. Whether you're a beginner or a "salty" sailor, a cruiser or a racer, you'll learn to sail comfortably and safely. GSS Courses don't just teach you to sail. We are creating
well-rounded sailors, and building sailing relationship with our students for years to come. Top results
and student satisfaction are our primary goals. We will not sacrifice quality for quantity! We adjust our teaching methods to every student’s sailing needs, and that's the key to our success. We don't mass produce certificate holders, we produce skilled sailors. Start your sailing adventure at our Connelly, NY sailing school classroom; you'll be in good hands and on the way to becoming a competent sailor!
At Griffin Sailing School (GSS), we realize that sailing is not available to everyone. For many folks, sailing is mysterious or inaccessible. GSS offers them the opportunity to have fun, learn to sail on the Hudson River and learn about life on the water. Speak to your organization about community sailing and ask them to Contact Us. We are happy to work with nonprofit and religious organizations, schools, villages, towns, public institutions, and anyone who would like to learn to sail. We will work with you to develop programs with equal and easy access to maritime education and sailing fun. We will do our best to accommodate special needs when possible. Sailing is fun, friendly and healthy for the world and for humanity. Sailing teaches cooperation and many other practical skills that apply at sea and in everyday life, whether it is sailing on the Hudson River or offshore.
We welcome your ideas. Let's make it happen!
