Sail Buffalo

The Sail Buffalo project entails the transformation of an abandoned inlet into a Community Boating Center that provides public access to Buffalo’s waterfront. We are an accredited sailing school with a mission to create an exciting safe and secure facility on Buffalo’s Outer Harbor, enabling public access to the waterfront through boating, wellness and environmental programming. Our goal is to provide a destination for on-the-water training, holistic learning experiences, wellness and environmental education regardless of income, gender and age, including people with disabilities, and to provide a safe-haven for young veterans and their families.

Our History

Being on the water is a truly transformative experience. After the launch of our unique Eco Floating Classroom 2011, and after merging with Cazenovia Community Resource Center (501-C-3) during 2012, we have finally found an ideal location at 2 Fuhrmann Blvd by the USCG, and created a true Community Boating Center!

Amistad sails into Havana Cuba!

For many of Buffalo’s waterfront visitors, it was a memorable moment when Amistad visited us several years ago. Over 100,000 visitors in just a few days.

We organized a small fleet of boats, school children were on-board, it was an amazing experience. Our hope is that this floating good will ambassador will assist in opening up the relations between the Cubans and ourselves.

Sail Buffalo would love to open an affiliate sailing school anytime the opportunity would present itself and the circumstances would allow it.
