Participation in a sport like sailing builds confidence and self-esteem, while it challenges the whole person. Y-Knot is all about sailing — regardless of your experience or physical abilities. If you’re someone with a disability looking for a new challenge, or an able-bodied sailor interested in seeing your sport in a completely new light, contact us. We’ll be happy to share our dream with you and demonstrate how sailing lets us “leave our disabilities on the shore.”
YMCA services in the Capital Region of New York State have affected the spirit, mind and body of people for more than 150 years. The 1990 forming of the Capital District YMCA signified a resurgence of those expected high quality services with the union of its parts in Albany, Glenville, Schenectady, Troy and its camping branch on Lake George. The later additions of Southern Saratoga County, Guilderland and East Greenbush, along with the extensive capital and programmatic expansion has reiterated the YMCA’s commitment to the children, families, seniors and communities in the Capital District.
The Capital District YMCA employs more than 1,200 full and part time staff and serves more than 38,000 members including 14,000 family members. An additional 30,000 area residents enjoy various YMCA activities through program services.
