Youth Sailing

Your child begins in a safe protected environment inside the marina
The Coyote Point Yacht Club is offering sailing lessons for children ages 8-12 who wish to learn to sail and/or improve their sailing skills. 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.

A 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.
