Hello Parents and Guardians,
Thank you for looking into the National Yacht Club Sailing and Racing School for your child this summer!
As a graduate of the program, I can tell you that this camp will be a wonderful adventure for your child. They will of course be having fun outside and learning new skills, but this camp will also help with self-confidence and problem solving as no two days on the water are exactly the same.
We have successfully run our sailing school for over 60 years, and have taken that time to grow and innovate. We have kept up to date with the latest teaching methods (all of our instructors are CANSail certified) and used our expertise to tailor them to best suit our campers.
This camp is great for children aged 7-18, and is great for all levels - from people who have never set foot on a boat (CANSail 1) to those who have a lot of racing experience (CANSail 5/6). These days in particular, this is a great opportunity for kids to socialize outdoors.
After running a safe and successful program in 2020, we look forward to another great summer!
Hope to see you on the water,
Vice Commodore - Education
