Come Sailing With Us In Philadelphia! 

Thanks for stopping by to find out more about classes and sailing with us in the Greater Philadelphia area! We’re looking forward to a great 2018 season, and it won’t be long now!

Staying close to home, members in our region can go sailing without making a road trip; and yes, there’s good sailing to be had in Philadelphia! Not only that, you’ll find many of the city’s exciting restaurants, cultural offerings and historical treasures just a couple of blocks away from where the boats are moored!

Imagine hopping into the car after work on a Tuesday night so that you can head to the boat  to get in a mid-week escape; sailing along the exciting and beautiful Philadelphia waterfront! As soon as you clear the breakwater you’ll be  able to raise the sails for a fantastic cruise along our historic waterfront.

Whether you want to learn to sail, be part of a crew, or skipper the boat on your own,or do a Captained Charter, we’ve got a solution for you!

The Delaware River offers an exciting challenge to satisfy every boater’s interest. There are many places to explore as you head north or south from the city. You can even make your way to the Chesapeake Bay by way of the C&D Canal.

Imagine a sail before sunset, returning the boat to its slip, then hopping over a few blocks for a wonderful meal in downtown Philadelphia. Plus you can add sleeping on board to your evening’s adventure! You can plan a night like this; all for less than you’d spend for a night in a hotel in the city.

Step aboard our vessels that are harbored right at the marina on Penn’s Landing . Our sailing area offers the excitement of sailing in a big city. Not only will you be able to raise the sails as soon as you clear the marina’s breakwater, you’ll also gain valuable experience by boating in our active port location. There’s so much to learn in our location plus all of the excitement of the great down-town atmosphere is only a few blocks away!

Our sister base at the Jersey Shore offers memberships to sail the Barnegat Bay, launching from the Ocean Gate Yacht Basin. This can be your waterfront property for many adventures at the shore this summer.

Located where Tom’s River joins the bay, you’ll be able to sail in a seashore atmosphere, anchor in a quiet harbor or even do a bit of crabbing to take a chance at catching your dinner for the evening. There are many spots to dock and dine or to grab a mooring ball.

On Tom’s River enjoy the beautiful shoreline adorned with gingerbread style homes or keep yourself entertained by watching the match races put on by one of the regional yacht clubs.
