The Purpose Of This Site Is To Expand Cruising As A Group Event.
If you never had the opportunity to raft along side other boats, with friends or total strangers – you are missing out on a lot of fun – and the chance to make more friends! No matter what your interest level, check out this site and our cruising dates and events. Then just contact me about when and where you can join in one of our many cruises! This is an interactive site so feel free to make comments or suggestions.
My name is Joseph Shadel and I am the Cruising Chair Person at the City Island Yacht Club. I was offered this position in July of last sailing season and even at this late start, managed to organize several successful cruises. We went to places like Sagamore Yacht Club in Oyster Bay. Waved to Billy Joel as we sailed by his Mansion. To Northport to hang in the pool at the Northport Yacht Club during our heat wave of last summer and all the way to Port Jefferson to walk the dunes in Pirates Cove then into town for a great relaxing dinner. Go to the photos & videos gallery page to see some of the fun we all had.
Hopefully we are blessed with a summer full of fair winds so we can sail all the way there and back, without the noise of our trustworthy engines.
We hope you are interested in cruising life and will join us for a few or our events this summer. No hitch, no gimmicks and it’s free to be a part of our events and best of all it’s lots of fun!!! So leave your worries at the dock, pack your boat and let’s go!!!!
