Junior Sailing Program

Michael Dudley has volunteered to take over the direction of Junior Sailing beginning with our September 2017 sessions. Michael brings both enthusiasm and experience to the job.  

 

Junior members ages 8-18 are invited to participate in the club’s Junior Sailing Program. Supervised sailing and instruction are held from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. for two Sundays of each month during the spring and fall seasons. Young sailors are taught basic sailing skills and learn to sail aboard the club’s Optimist prams, Picos, Lasers, or Hobe 14’s. As experience increases they will have the opportunity learn racing skills and participate in local junior regattas. Learning to sail promotes self confidence and self reliance along with social skills and team work.
