Your future crew and the next America’s Cup skippers are in the making at
CPYC’s Youth Sailing Program!
It is mid-season and CPYC’s Youth Sailing program is in full swing.
This summer has provided an abundance of excellent weather
for the participants. In our program, junior sailors learn the basics of sailing, racing, and boating safety from our certified sailing instructors.
We offer seven week-long sessions each summer. Participant’s ages range from 8-13. In its training fleet Coyote Point YC has 10 Optimists prams, two Lasers, and two Puffers for the young sailors. (Of course, adventurous adult club members have access to the fleet, when the junior sailors aren’t using them.)
The Youth Sailing camp starts at 9:00 and runs until 4:00 each weekday during the summer months. The final week of this year’s program will be the week of August 7-11. Club members can take advantage of the program at a discount rate. If you know a young person who might be interested in learning to sail and having a sailing adventure this summer, contact CPYC via our website,
Program instructors are: Keven Kirberg, Meris Walsh, and Cyarah Vince.
