This camp is designed to build the following character traits:

  • Independence: Although they are always supported by their coach, racers sail single-handed (one per boat) and as such are responsible for all of the decisions they make out on the water! They learn to be independent quickly!
  • Responsibility: Racers learn to manage their own boat, (charters available) and equipment and are responsible for rigging and maintaining their boat on a day to day basis. In a race, they are ultimately responsible for the state of their equipment and for the decisions they make!

This program is for young sailors aged 8-14 who enjoy time on the water and have a growing interest in competing in the sport - no race experience necessary! It is an excellent opportunity to practice in a small group with dedicated race coaches.

This youth program consists of a core eight-week program operating Monday to Friday, 9:00 am to 4:00* pm during July and August. Spring and Fall training is also available on Sundays, 11:00 to 4:00* pm

The sailors are introduced to a more serious training camp atmosphere, while maintaining a fun atmosphere. Fostering a continuing love of sailing is given clear priority over race results! Sailors will train with an experienced race coach and will begin to develop advanced sailing skills, begin to understand racing rules, tactics, strategy, regatta preparation, and race fitness. Sailors use racing Optimists, the international youth racing standard. Sailors must provide their own boat. If you do not have a boat, charters are available. Junior membership to ABYC is included for those participating in a full season.

Participants have the opportunity to participate in a minimum of 3 local regattas (summer and fall) depending on their personal objectives. The racing skills that they develop are applicable to the internationally recognized CANSail certification, meaning they will be working towards achieving level 2 or more over the duration of the program.

​​​​​​​Note:

-This program requires approx. 3 weekends of travel and demands a moderate level of commitment from both sailors and their parents.

-Parents are responsible for chaperoning their youth and for transportation of their boat and equipment. Club trailers are available and parents who tow will be reimbursed for travel expenses.

-Regatta fees and travel expenses (transportation, lodging, and food) are not covered in the program fee.)

-Sailors need their own boat. A limited number of charters are available under section A11
