For 19 years, The WaterFront Center has been connecting people to the water through education and recreation. We accomplish this through our private charters and public sails aboard the National Historic Landmark, Christeen, adult and junior sailing programs, marine science and STEM programs, after-school enrichment programs, as well as sailboat and paddle rentals. For 2019, the revenue from these programs will cover only a portion of the operating expenses for our organization. We rely on your support to keep these vital programs ongoing.

One of the many highlights of 2019 was a program with the Adaptive Sports Academy at the NYC’s Hospital for Special Surgery’s Pediatric Division. A group of cerebral palsy patients, along with their families, joined us for an adaptive sailing excursion that provided them an alternate way to improve their cognitive and physical condition. Adaptive sailing allows patients to experience the outdoors, help build their self-confidence, and provides them the opportunity to become more independent. While sailing, patients move in ways they are not used to, helping them focus on new muscle groups and balance. These movements are emphasized through the unpredictable nature of sailing and boat movements - as the boat sails over and through waves.

Eighteen-year-old Charles, currently being treated for learning disabilities and a curve in his spine that limits his physical activity, said “I am SO excited!” as he went sailing for the first time. That delight is enough to make anybody’s day.
