Learn to Sail

Greenwich Community Sailing

has sponsored the popular Greenwich Community Sailing (GCS) program since 1998. It is open to all Greenwich residents with a Greenwich Park pass.


GCS offers a wide range of courses for entry level to advanced adult sailors, kayak / paddle board enthusiasts and juniors. Discounts on the rentals and classes are available to OGYC members.

The Sailing Center is located beyond the OGYC Clubhouse in the Chimes Building at Greenwich Point. Visit the Greenwich Community Sailing website to see the programs, schedules, and fees.

Private and Semi-Private Lessons with OGYC
TBD for 2020

If you understand the basics of sailing and would like to enhance your skills, OGYC has a highly experienced instructor who conducts lessons using the club's Ideal 18 sail fleet.  GCS uses center board boats, a terrific place to start your sailing instruction before you move into sailing keel boats at OGYC and our instructor helps provide a smooth transition.
