Welcome to  River Rats!

Teaching children to sail since 1955

River Rats (also known as the Fair Haven Sailing Club) is an educational non-profit organization dedicated to sailing: individual sailing, training, and family fun. We are located on the beautiful Navesink River in Fair Haven, New Jersey.

With more members having kayaks, we added three new racks this spring, space for 18 more kayaks. Memorial Day was a great start to the sailing and paddling season, the weather was perfect for River Rats to host a Fair Haven BBQ. Low tide at Fourth Creek was the favorite place for all the children. To returning and new member families, and to guests: Welcome to River Rats, and a great sailing or paddling season for all.
