Tod's Point Sailing School

The historic Chimes Building at Tod’s Point in Old Greenwich has been a storied home to community sailing programs for generations of Greenwich residents. In earlier times it has operated under the stewardship of The Young Mariners, Old Greenwich Yacht Club, the Parks and Recreation Department, and today by the non-profit organization, Tod’s Point Sailing School (TPSS)

TPSS is a public access program whose mission is to make Long Island Sound accessible to the public. Its priorities are: safety, fun, and learning, while offering instruction and hourly boat rentals every day all summer long to the local community. 

Tod’s Point Sailing School welcomes all Town residents. There is no membership requirement and no need to own a boat. There is a variety of small vessels, both sail and paddle, available to the public for hourly rental. Patrons pay as they go, without any ongoing obligation or long-term commitment.  

Old Greenwich Yacht Club Commodore ex officio, Bill King and John Kantor were among the original founders of most recent community sailing program in 1998. It soon won national recognition from US Sailing as the Best New Program

Responding to a Town request, Bill King and John Kantor came out of “retirement” to restore the program under new non-profit stewardship with a new name. 

We are looking forward to a successful first season. For additional information please visit:
