go Yacht Club Sailing School runs an extensive summer sailing program from mid-June to mid-August. Courses provide the opportunity for participants to develop the skills and confidence necessary to enjoy the sport of sailing. Courses are designed specifically for different ages and levels of experience, and are offered throughout the summer to provide a variety of opportunities to get young sailors on the water.

The program also gives the more experienced junior sailors the chance to compete as members of the Race Teams. Teams travel locally, regionally and nationally to compete in regattas. 

Most classes run all day. Daily lunch is included in program tuition. Placement in all classes is subject to approval by the Sailing School staff. 

Safety is crucial in all of our programs. Students must demonstrate comfort in and around water to participate. They also must provide their own life jacket and wear rubber-soled, closed-toed shoes during class.
