Youth Sailing Summer Program

With the careful instructions of club members who have a commitment to promoting the sport, teaching sailing, and instilling confidence, this is a great opportunity.

We are an all-volunteer academy and always need volunteers who are willing to give some time and help expand our efforts and offer this program to more youth. There are numerous tasks you can help with to support this endeavor!
