Knickerbocker Sailing Association is a non-profit gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender sailing club, now in its 21st 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 experience to join, because we are a welcoming group that will teach each other the basics of sailing 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.

    America’s Cup racing will return to New York for the first time since 1920 with Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series racing on May 7-8, 2016.

    The New York event is one of six events planned during 2016, each featuring thrilling, high-speed competition, as six America’s Cup teams, with the top sailors in the world, vie for points that count towards the final competition for the 35th America’s Cup in 2017.

    No definite KSA plans yet, but let's think about organizing some spectator boats for the races.
