We invite you who would take to the sea to the waters of Long Island Sound, by joining the Huguenot Yacht Club Junior Sailing Program this coming Summer.  

• Our program teaches sailing to children ages 8-16 in a safe, caring and fun environment.

• From beginners to more advanced sailors, children learn to rig and sail their boats via instructional and hands-on training. 

• Children are coached daily in seamanship, on-the-water safety and racing PLUS they enjoy organized games, picnic lunches, and a supervised free swim each afternoon in the Club’s pool.

• Learning to sail is an excellent way for children to become self-reliant, learn a life-long sport and make lasting friendships and memories.

About Huguenot Junior Sailing Program

WHAT MAKES OUR PROGRAM GREAT?

OUR JUNIOR SAILING COMMITTEE AND STAFF

We believe our instructors are some of the best:  all are US Sailing Association Level 1 or Level 2 Certified.  All have gone through a similar sailing program like the one at Huguenot Yacht Club and know what it's like to be a junior sailor.  As instructors and coaches, they chose to stick around to pass on their love of sailing as a skill and a sport, and share what and how they learned in the process.  They know that learning to sail is a great way to become self-reliant, make friends, and form life-long memories – that's what they will offer you. Whether you are a beginner or more advanced, our high instructor-to-student ratio ensures that you will receive the best instruction, and enjoy a sailing experience that is second to none.
