Open for boat usage by individuals and families each week, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays 6-8:30p, plus Saturdays and Sundays 11a - 6p, beginning June 23rd and ending August 8th.

After decades of operating a successful youth sailing camp since our founding in 1956, over the last several years we’ve expanded access and use of our boats, facilities and equipment to a much wider cross section of the public, across all ages.

 

As an independent 501c3 Sailing Program, SBJSA has experienced overwhelming support from it's alumni and community. The next logical progression was for us to expand our educational facility to the community at large. We worked through the process to become a nationally accredited community sailing and boating center,  the only one is Upstate New York! Accreditation insures that SBJSA Community Boating adheres to a national standard for community sailing programs. Accredited programs use US Sailing certified instructors, have detailed emergency and safety procedures, use curricula that meet US Sailing’s teaching standards, and are properly insured.
