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.
