JUNIOR SAILNG INFORMATION PAGE



BBYC

We have set things up a little different this year, with two new courses! An intermediate level as well as a keelboat for kids. Check it out!


Please note all sailors will have to pay the annual admin fee.


Environmental Responsibility 


As sailors we are privileged to play on the ocean everyday and, as such, consider ourselves stewards of the environment. Appreciation for and enjoyment of a clean ocean is a key component of our sailing program.


Wetfeet

This program runs from 8:30-12:00 OR 12:30-4:00 Monday-Friday for one week.


Wetfeet is designed for sailors ages 5-8, who are looking to gain the basics of sailing and get comfortable on the water. This is a half-day, week-long course. If you choose to enroll your student in both the morning session and afternoon session, lunchtime supervision is provided.


Sailors can register for both AM and PM sessions, and for multiple sessions.
