Youth Sailing Class Registration



Sign up your child for a great summer on the bay!  There is no better way to spend your summer then on the water learning how to sail.  The Sausalito Yacht Club Junior Program promotes hands on instruction through on-the-water teaching, classroom sessions, adventure sailing, and learn to race classes.  The main focus of the program is to ensure your child experiences a wonderfully fun and adventurous summer in one of the best sailing venues in the world!

Frequently Asked Questions:

Why commit to two week sessions?  When learning how to sail, the first 3 days are full of basics and introductions to the activity of sailing.  Students really start ‘sailing’ around day 4/5 in there own boat.   The second week provides a lot of sailing and time on the water with specially designed drills and activities to help learn the basics of sailing.  For our intermediate level students the first week is often a review of what was learned in previous summers and the second week maximizes time on the water so they can become confident and independent sailors and participate in adventure sailing away from the club.
Can I do one week of a two week session?  You can do the first week only and will be charged an extra fee of $200.

Can I split my two week session?  Yes, contact the Youth sailing Director for details.

Is there a sibling discount?  Only for 3+.  Contact the Youth Sailing Director for discount information.
Do we offer life jackets and wet suits to borrow?  We only have extras for those that may forget their gear on any given day.  Life Jackets can be purchased at West Marine, Costco, sporting good stores etc.  Wetsuits can be purchased at West Marine, Proof Lab or rentals from Sports Basement.
