The mission of the Mariana Yacht Club Youth Sailing Program is to provide a safe, fun and empowering learning environment designed to develop skills required for sailing; to promote personal growth and independence within the sport, to achieve proficient levels in boat handling and maintenance, and to develop decision making skills, while encouraging sportsmanship, leadership and teamwork.
This program is designed for students between 10 and 17 years to introduce the sport and art of sailing. During the program, beginner students will learn basic sailing techniques from US Sailing Certified Instructors. Our ultimate goal is that each student will become active participants in the sport, learn valuable lessons in self- confidence, teamwork, and respect for nature and fellow man.
Safety is our main concern and top priority. All students are required to wear life jackets in the water and while sailing. No exceptions will be tolerated.
The program is open to students ages 9-17 who demonstrate adequate swimming skills.
After registration has been processed, you will receive a medical waiver and a waiver that must be completed and returned prior to the start of a class.
