Weekend Seatreats

You balance patients, peers, family, friends, loved ones, pets, neighbors…

Come to unwind sailing New York Harbor this summer.

We sail a couple of times a month between May and October, tide and weather permitting.

All NYU PM&R Residents, Faculty, and Alumni are welcomed, and…

It is most comfortable with up to 6 people at a time, so… first 6 to sign up for a particular date get to go!

Boat Facts

MEA is a 25′ Ranger Tug Trawler built in the United States in 2016.

Screen Shot 2018-03-09 at 11.39.16 AM

The name is an acronym for ‘Moroz Eduard/Alex’ after the father-and-son crew/owners. MEA usually sails the waters of Lower New York Harbor, up the Hudson River, and East to Fire Island.





Come on time

Bring your lunch and drink

Wear hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen

Don’t talk about work or politics

Make sure you know how to find and work the head (toilet for landlubbers)

Let the crew know if you get seasick- we have Meclizine and old wife’s tricks

Most importantly, relax and have fun!

Signing Up

Email alex.moroz@nyumc.org with your name and any questions you may have. Remember, the first 6 have priority. We will keep a running list of people for each date, so if your availability changes please let us know.

Since we have gone commercial, we ask that once we agree on a date, you sign up through one of our online platforms (don’t worry, we will make the price go down to $1) so that you can drop in some awesome reviews!

Don’t worry- if you don’t get to go this time, you will be at the head of the line for the next date.

    Thank you for the invite! Would love to join you!! Not sure yet about weekend of 5/15-16, but will be back in touch.

  8. Amy Jamison says:

    Dear Captain Moroz,
    I would like to come along on a sailing expedition.
    I will keep my fingers crossed that a vacation week will coincide with a sailing opportunity. August 1st or 8th when a friend of mine from Florida will be in town might be fun. She is much more entertaining to take along on a sailboat than I am.
    I have sailing experience and will try to remember which way to luff the sail on the tacking into the wind maneuver.

  9. Jackie says:

    Hey Dr. M,
    I think July will be better for me… save me a seat!

    PS – I know nothing about sailing but I know EVERYTHING about enjoying the sun and relaxing

  10. Safia R Khan says:

    i am down Dr.M.. and I’ll even bring a date along 🙂 let me know when you end up taking her out.. all weekends are good except memorial day weekend!

  11. Ben says:

    Look out for updates…

  17. Alex Moroz says:

    Some time in June MEA will be sailing up the Hudson to Haverstraw for a refit.

    The trip is 10-12 hours one way, and we will stay there for a day.

    Planned repairs and upgrades include:
    -repair of the anchor windlass
    -engine diagnostics and maintenance
    -installation of an AIS transponder (that little gadget will allow us to see and be seen by other ships regardless of visibility)

  18. Alex Moroz says:

    Extra sail this Sunday if weather allows- 3 spots available. Mystery crew member will be helping.

  19. Nannette Pares says:

  24. Likely July dates:

    -July 10 or 11
    -July 24 or 25

  31. Amy says:

    Any openings for August 1st? Room for two? My sister and I are interested.

  32. Jackson Liu says:

    Hey Dr. Moroz,

    If there’s still room for 2 and no other residents have time to go i’d like to go on the trip and bring my girlfriend. Let me know if that works!

  33. We may go out this weekend (Aug 14 or 15)- will know more towards the end of the week. Sign up if interested.

  34. Other than splitting the mainsail arrived home in style. Exciting time- current was with us most of the time, and that shaved off 2 hours from estimated travel time. And, I saw not one but two shooting stars, not to mention new moon, setting Venus, Polaris, Arcturus…

  35. Sign up for September 11 or 12.

  36. Amy Jamison says:

    if there is still room, I would like to go on the 11th or 12th. Thanks.

  37. Next sail probably September 25-26

  38. Sailing in Central Park this weekend.
    Will move water activities to next weekend if nature behaves.

  39. Hoping to sail on Sunday October 3, if it is dry and reasonably warm.
    Let me know if you will be coming.

  40. We are planning to sail MEA from her winter quarters in Rockaway to home berth in Sheepshead Bay on Saturday May 14, weather permitting.

  41. Amy says:

    June 18th is too soon for me, I just came home from PR and need more time to bake the cookies. I will love to come once this summer when there is space. One of my daughters is living with me temporarily and I will please like to bring her when there is space.

  42. Our guest crew of 5 fought the elements and mal de mer valiantly. Great southern rollers with wind that blew at steady 20 knots and gusted to 24 made for a real sailing experience. We escaped the rain, however, which did not begin until after 4.

  43. MEA is signed up for a July 4 Regatta; Our crew (Moroz, Moroz and Davila) are thoroughly worked up and ready to go for the win 🙂

  44. Check us out:

    We secured an honorable last place and received a traditional Slaves Trophy given to the slowest boat 🙂

  45. Planning to depart by 11 on August 5
