Youth Programs

Youth Sessions

Updated 7/26/17

The emphasis in our program is to offer a positive atmosphere for learning both sailing and life skills. Instructors help students safely expand their confidence through small accomplishments and self discovery.

Youth aged 10-16 can learn the art of sailing! The program is designed to teach sailing basics and beyond. Each students will have their own Sabot, sized just for young sailors. They are 8 foot long sailboats that are lightweight, relatively safe and stable. These craft are so easy to operate that they are used in many youth sailing programs. This program builds self-esteem and personal confidence in a fun-filled stimulating environment.

There also are Intermediate/Racing classes for the youth. Once a student completes the Novice class they can enroll in the Intermediate/Racing class.

Class times for the sessions are as follows:
– Youth sessions will be from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Costs for the five day Novice class will be $50.00 per participant. The costs for the Intermediate/Racing class is $50.00 per participant.

A swim check is required for all participants.
