Time Out says
Looking to be a baller on a boat? Of course you are, fancy pants. Learn the ropes at the West 79th Street Boat Basin, where Atlantic Yachting will have you at the ship’s helm almost immediately. Get your feet wet with the course Introduction to Sailing, which teaches basic maneuvers, knots, docking and terminology (like starboard versus portside). But if you really want to be legit, the course Basic Keelboat gets you certified so you can go out on your own—or at the very least, impress your pals with that captain’s hat.
