HomeFirst Sail!


What is the sailing experience like? The answer is as varied as the people who enjoy getting out on the water.  For some community sailing provides access to a comfortable day-sailer to cruise the protected waters of Cooper River Park.  For others they own their own racing boat and try and tear up the race course against some of the best small boat racers in South Jersey!

Cooper River Yacht Club has been introducing sailors to the sport since 1945 and has an active training program for adults and youth in addition to our racing and community sailing program. There is something for sailors of all ages and levels.
