The Sailors Ball is the annual black tie gala which celebrates the start of the new sailing season. It is always one of the best and most exciting black tie parties of the year! All sailors and sailing enthusiasts in the New York area are invited to attend. The Sailors Ball raises money for Operation Optimist, the largest junior sailing program in NY Harbor. This program is run by the New York Harbor Sailing Foundation.
About Operation Optimist
Operation Optimist is a junior sailing program for kids in New York Harbor. This program serves kids ages 8 to 13. The program is taught on Optimist class dinghies. The dinghies are kept on a floating dock in the harbor and kids travel out to the dock every day by launch. Then they go sailing under the gaze of the Statue of Liberty. Learn more »
