ONE°15 Brooklyn Sail Club is a membership based sailing organization founded in 2015 to serve the New York Harbor sailing community with high performance, professionally maintained racing and cruising boats.
The Club is an integral part of the ONE°15 Brooklyn Marina project serving as the gateway to New York Harbor’s waterfront. Coupled with a unique sail programming and a club center for sailing activities, our goal is to assist in revitalizing recreational sailing in New York Harbor.
Our philosophy is centered around programming to help people sail better and to foster a culture where members can share their knowledge and experiences with others.

We are proud to be a member of US Sailing, the national organization that provides leadership, integrity and advancement for the sport of sailing. Our membership receives guidance and support in all areas of our sailing programs. We also operate an US Sailing-accredited Sailing School.
What We Offer
Our fleet is comprised of six Melges 24’s and eight J80’s. These are first rate, modern designed boats sailed around the world by novices and professionals alike. We include spinnakers on our boats as part of the standard equipment. Our fleet is maintained by professionals who love boating and treat each boat as their own.
Assorted Cruising Opportunities
Club members with skipper’s privileges are eligible to sign out Club boats on their own and bring their own guests. Just make an online boat reservation, show up, follow the Club’s pre-departure and return protocols and that’s it. Skippers can also bring along other Club Members sailing as well. This is just like having your own boat without the hassles of ownership.
Fleet Captain Cruising
Crew members looking to crew on boat can go sailing by making an online reservation for a Fleet Captain cruise. You and your fellow Fleet Captain crew-mates will be assigned to an experienced skipper whom you will help take out the boat. Our Fleet Captains are either our sailing coaches or experienced Club members.
Our Fleet Captains are tasked with getting you out on the water, enjoying a little sailing and building your sailing skills and knowledge base. Have fun, learn a little and laugh a lot on these sails. These participants will be the Club’s next generation of members with Skipper privileges.
Daytime Weekday Sailing
The Club organizes and informal of group members who are interested in sailing during the day on weekdays. These sails are a combination of private sails and Fleet Captain cruises depending on the situation.
Each year, the Club organizes a charter in a warm climate like the Caribbean. These trips are open to Club members and the general public where an experienced captain will guide their crew around the beautiful cruising spots on and off the water. Sail exotic places, meet new friends and have the adventure of a lifetime.
Competitive club racing has been scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday evenings. Visit our racing page to view the 2017 Notice of Race and for more information. We also offer special racing events and casual racing on Saturdays where you can learn to race or hone your skills in a friendly environment.
Club members can take out club boats on their own once they have been granted skipper privileges.
At ONE°15 Brooklyn Sail Club, we take the safety of our Club members very seriously. We have designed a comprehensive assessment process unique to New York Harbor’s traffic, tide and current patterns, Club protocols and our Club boats.
To help Club members obtain their skipper privileges, our sailing programs are designed to enhance their boating skills and knowledge so that all our members may eventually obtain skipper privileges if they desire. Qualified members can then take the ONE15 BSC Learn-to-Skipper program. More experienced sailors can challenge the Skipper Certification test after a few Fleet Captain sails.
