Join us for Blessing of the Fleet, Sunday, June 2, 12 noon at Steppingstone Marina.         At the beginning of the boating season, representative vessels pass before the dock at Steppingstone's marina to accept greetings/benedictions from dignitaries and community members for a safe season. Good wishes are extended to all vessels in the mooring field.

The Sailing School Open House will follow the Blessing of the Fleet at 1 p.m.

Steppingstone Park is home to our marina; an oasis overlooking the western part of beautiful Long Island Sound. Established in 1942, this is where the Park District offers mooring facilities, beach boat permits, a boat launching ramp and a fishing dock.

 The Steppingstone Sailing School offers a variety of lessons/programs for adults and children.

If you are a boat owner, moor your boat with us and enjoy a completely unique experience. An extensive launch service is offered along with friendly, helpful staff. Relax on your boat at your mooring or on our dock where you will enjoy breathtaking sunsets over the New York City skyline!
