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

Our Team



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.
