City Island Yacht Club

Incorporated 1907


CIYC Junior Sailing is run by an international team of highly motivated professionals. Our director has a lifetime of experience, having run programs from California to New York. Our racing coaches have done both, competed on the world stage themselves, and coached world-class sailors. Our younger sailors are coached by a young, dynamic team of US Sailing certified counselors and closely supervised by our senior staff members  (also US Sailing and Safe Sport certified).

Ira S. Biegeleisen – Program Director
