    We had a wonderful day with Captain Eric at the helm. The voyage to the Thimble Islands was enjoyed by all three generations of passengers.
    Captain Eric was gracious, fun, and extremely knowledgeable. It was a great sailing experience.
    For some of us, it was the first sailing and his expert command of the vessel gave us a feeling of safety and enjoyment.
    We highly recommend a trip on the Nomande. We plan on going again.

Hi, bonjour, buongiorno! If you are looking at this page, this is a good sign and thank you for stopping by :) I am a French citizen living in the US since 1985 and sailing over the oceans since I was 12. Passionate about boats and sailing, most importantly I love to share the passion of sailing. I am a USCG licensed captain, teach sailing courses and offer sailing charters on my 35 foot performance cruiser or coach/captain on other boats. As a captain, I can be very discrete or part of the team but either way, I will make every effort to make your sailing experience enjoyable, fun and memorable. A bientot maybe...

Location and Destination Guide

Usually this boat operates around Branford, CT.

New York City looks great from the ground, but that view from the water is something else! Jump aboard a Sailo boat rental from the Big Apple and experience the thrill of the sea - and snap plenty of incredible pictures. Sailing in NYC is a must on your summer bucket list, whether you are visiting or a New Yorker.

It might not be the first thing you think of when finding things to do in New York City, but renting a boat for a full day or just a few hours is a truly memorable experience.
