Youth Sailing

The NYCC’s Junior Sailing Program is the oldest running summer program at the club; with a rich history, spanning over 65 years, the junior program boasts an array of alumni and coaches that range from CBYRA champions, to College All-Americans and even an Olympic Gold Medalist!
NYCC sailing programs offer a variety of classes to meet the needs of different skilled sailors. We are now running year-around sailing! The main focus of our instruction is summer; however we are now offering an avenue for Opti racers and Laser racers to keep continuing to sail and race during the non-summer months. Give your child the unique opportunity to make new friends, learn to sail and gain confidence and independence on the water. Each year we have over 100 young sailors participate in our summer programs. Sailing is a sport for life!
