The free program takes place every weekend from Memorial Day to Labor Day. For three of those days, community members can also try their hand at sailing. Community Sailing, the City’s only sailing program offered in a low-income, inner-city neighborhood, aims to make sailing a staple of the South Bronx waterfront.
