Society for the Education of American Sailors


For more than 30 years, SEAS Westchester has offered low-cost sailing experiences along the Hudson River.

As your local chapter of the the Society for the Education of American Sailors, our all-volunteer team of instructors, dock-masters, and water assistants have educated more than 2,000 sailors in the greater Westchester area. SEAS Westchester is a non-profit committed to safe, affordable, environmentally-conscious use of the Hudson River for recreational sailing.

Our colorful fleet of Sunfish and Phantoms adds a picturesque touch of activity and summer fun to the reviving waterfront. We conduct classes and launch from Kingsland Point Park in Sleepy Hollow, NY, and venture on open sails as far north as Croton Bay!
