WBYC operates an instructional sailing program for young people to age eighteen. Registration for the youth program is available to both members and non-members.
Our summer program typically offers three levels of lessons; Introduction to Sailing; Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced Optis; and Introduction and Advanced 420s.
GET READY for this season's Junior Sailing Program!
Our program is scheduled to run from June 26th - August 17th. Most of our staff will be returning for another great season! You can read Korey Charles’ bio here. This summer, we are requesting that all sailors commit to at least two weeks of sailing. We will have 4 sessions. Please see the link below for session dates and costs.
Please note: Registration and payment will be online again this year. This year, you will notice that your registration costs will include an additional $25 contribution towards our Junior Sailing “Bingo by the Bay” fundraisers. If you would prefer to donate an item/basket valued at $25+, you may certainly do so. Just unclick the box for the $25 donation upon checkout and plan to bring your donation on your child’s first day of lessons.
Registration is a two-part process, first complete Step 1: Registration Form (button below) to provide necessary participant information. After completing the form, return to this page and go to "Step 2: Payment."
FYI: Boats are provided for both the “Learn to Sail” and 420 sailing classes. Opti sailors are invited to bring their own Opti to lessons. If you do not own an Opti, please plan to register for the class choice that includes a boat rental. Please know that this rental fee does not mean that your child will use the same boat each day. It simply guarantees access to a boat during lessons.
Finally, please SAVE THE DATES!
