Knickerbocker Sailing Association is a non-profit gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender boating club, now in its 22nd 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 or boating experience to join, because we are a welcoming group that will teach each other the basics of sailing, boating 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.

      UNITED STATES SAILBOAT SHOW


      We are putting a KSA group together to attend the Annapolis Sailboat Show from October 6th to 10th.


      We have booked 4 rooms (all double doubles - 2 queen beds) at the Historic Inns of Annapolis on State Circle for all 4 nights (Thursday to Monday). 


      This location is perfect for all the sailboat events and is just 2 blocks from the show and may restaurants and bars.


      Each room is $271 per night. There is a 4 night minimum stay for all reservations during the show so I will have to fill the room for 4 nights.  One room with 4 guests for 4 nights would cost approximately 300pp. tax included.  Valet Parking is available at 24$ per night. 


      Please register with the dates you need a room and I will coordinate the rooms. Single registrants will be required to share a double bed with another guest. 


      If you have any questions please contact Steve Kelley at srk1252@aol.com or 516-528-0051.
