Classes – Youth Learn to Sail

The mission of Junior Learn to Sail is to provide high quality boating safety programs for the community through education, recreation and competition. Learn to Sail develops the love of sailing in young people by making boats, time and expertise available while teaching proper boat handling, good sportsmanship, and encouraging innovation in all aspects of sailing.

Grab your friends and join us for our great 2024 summer Learn to Sail program. Please register early as classes usually fill quickly. No experience required. Boys and Girls ages 8-18 will be sailing their own sailboat. Our head coach will show you how easy it is to “Learn to Sail”. Boys and Girls do equally well in this sport.

        Starting Mondays June 10, June 17, June 24, July 8, July 15, and July 22
