News from the Sailing and Racing School
September 25th, 2014 @ 06:47 PM EST by admin

2014 saw a great season for the school. Revenue was up over 2013 as we’re enrollment numbers, notably in adult sailing and the race team participation. The mood of the school was vibrant, seeing many students re-enroll for additional weeks.

This years’ success was due not only to the hard work of our instructors, but also to the huge increase in parent participation. A notable thank you to parent Colleen Visci in this respect.

I would also like to thank all the members of the Sailing and Racing School Committee for putting this successful year together. Hugh Ritchie, Ned Kremic, Luc D’Aoust, Andy and Amelia Leeksma, Michael Egberts, Jason Hearst, Samantha Glass; The NYC thanks you.

Lastly, going forward into 2015 we are putting in place a marketing program that will target not only youth, but Adult-learn-to sail programs. Adult education has great potential for growth and increased membership as successful students continue on to crew, race, and keelboat programs offered by The NYC.

Well done everyone! And please wish us all a promising 2015 season.
