The former Chelsea ace was out with Jody Morris, John Terry, Frank Lampard and Eidur Gudjohnsen in the Posthouse Hotel on a drinking binge which was packed with grieving American tourists the day after the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington.
The players` behaviour was widely criticised as it caused offence to the upset Americans.
The Jamaican international expressed his sorrow for his actions in a statement.
"I wish to publicly apologise for my behaviour," said Sinclair. "There was no intention to show any disrespect to the people of America. I deeply regret any embarrassment that has been caused."
Sinclair also confirmed that the fine would be paid into the appeal fund to help the families of those killed and injured like those of the Chelsea players involved.
"I have spoken with the manager and have been informed that I will be subject to a club fine of two weeks' wages," said Sinclair.
"We have agreed that these monies will be paid into an appeal for the victims of the tragedies."
