Manhattan Corporate Sailboat Racing League
Every Wednesday night during the summer, you and your colleagues can jump on board for the most competitive night of racing on the Hudson River. No sailing experience is required to start, but you can build your skills by taking the Offshore Sailing School 2-day Accelerated Learn to Sail course. If you already know how to sail, then mold those skills into racing expertise with our 2-day Race Ready course.
The Colgate Offshore Sailing Club fleet is located in North Cove Marina in Brookfield Place. If your business isn’t nearby, North Cove is accessible from major subway lines and NJ ferries to the World Financial Center. This summer, Brookfield Place is hosting a pop-up bar on the promenade, So, after racing you can step right off the boat and unwind with a cold beverage and lots of hero stories!
Created by Offshore Sailing School founder and recent National Sailing Hall of Fame Inductee, Steve Colgate, the Colgate 26 is a fast one-designer racer with comfort and safety features. Named “Best Pocket Cruiser” by Cruising World magazine, Colgate 26s are the vessel of choice for the US Naval Academy and other notable maritime institutions.
The Colgate 26 fits 5 adults comfortably and is equipped with a tiller and outboard engine for smooth and safe maneuverability. With 19 boats available for racing on the Hudson, you can be assured of great fun. Put your brand on the big beautiful sail used for downwind racing and excite your team ashore and aboard. Think of the advertising and media value with thousands of eyeballs staring out to the river as the fleet glides by. Spinnaker branding is at your team’s expense and design, with prices ranging from $1500-$2500.
