Knickerbocker Sailing Association is a non-profit gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender boating club, now in its 23rd year.

We encourage members who support diversity and enjoy getting out on the water of the greater New York area. Members do not need sailing or boating experience to join, because we are a welcoming group that will teach each other the basics of sailing, boating and boat safety. Our membership consists of over 150 members, including crew, captains of sailboats and powerboats, and we all love the outdoors and the water.

If you are interested in joining our club we recommend that you attend one of our monthly meetings open to all. For more information on our club please look at About Us, or email us.
