Youth Sailing

Give your kids the gift of independence, adventure and a skill they can use for a lifetime! Coyote Point Yacht Club offers a weekly sailing camp for children ages 8 to 13 wishing to learn how to sail and/or to improve their skills.  We have 9 Optimist (Opti) Sailboats, each 8 feet long, designed for junior sailors as a single-handed dinghy that is easy to manage and fun to sail.  We also have a 2 Lasers for the more advanced junior sailors.

The program is designed to instruct the young sailing enthusiast in basic sailing skills and boating safety and to instill in them the joy of sailing. We provide instruction on the components of a boat, how to set up and sail a small boat, how to handle the wind, and proper boating etiquette. Advanced instruction including sail tuning, basic racing skills, and racing tactics and strategy is provided to students based upon their level of experience and abilities.

Our staff of experienced sailing instructors will put the young mariners through their paces in a comfortable, safe, positive and FUN environment. We look forward to seeing you this summer.
