General Information

The Northern Yacht Club offers a top notch, fun filled junior sail program during the summer months of July and August. The 2-week camps run from Monday to Friday from 9am to 4pm, while the 1-week session will run Monday through Thursday from 8:30am to 4:30pm. Each Friday of the 2 week session and the Thursday of the 1 week session, the program hosts a fun day, during which the sailors participate in barbeques, sailing and swimming.

Instruction is provided by Sail Canada certified instructors. The curriculum covers Sail Canada CANSail 1 to CANSail 4 levels. Certification is offered upon completion of each level. Students with no prior formal junior sailing instruction must register for at least two consecutive weeks.  Ideally, these two consecutive weeks will be in sessions 1, 2 or 4.  Children must be at least 8 years old by December 31, of this year to participate.

The program places an emphasis on safety, fun, and friendship, while also providing the children with a lifetime of memories. The Learn to Sail program uses three types of dinghies: King Fisher Pram, International Optimist and the Club 420. The Learn to Sail facility recently underwent a major renovation, providing the program with up to date equipment and a safe environment. If you have any questions regarding the NYC Junior Sailing Program, please contact our head coach, Georgina Hatcher, at georginahatcher97@gmail.com.
