Youth Sailing

Our Youth Sailing program offers a variety of programs for the young sailor - from novice to experienced.  Kids start out in our learn-to-sail rec program and then move to the Opti race team.  After a few years of Optis, the more experienced sailor moves to 420s and FJs on either of our race teams.

 

Registration is now open for our Youth Teams.  Please click here to register.
