Parents, 

Thank you for your interest the MYC Youth Summer Sailing Program!

The course will be taught by a US Sail Certified Level 1 Instructor, and supported by member volunteers of the Marianas Yacht Club including youth sailor Instructor Assistants, parents, and other volunteers who want to share their passion for sailing with Guam's youth.   If you are able to volunteer, we need you!    Volunteer opportunities include:   Beach Patrol Adult-on-Duty, Support Boat volunteers, and many more.  Email  Youth Sailing Volunteers  to log your interest.   


Before Registering for this class, please visit the main page for the Youth Summer Sailing Program to make sure you are signing your youth sailor up for the right class for your child's ability and age group.     

What does my youth sailor need prior to class?    
Please make sure your youth sailor comes with their own Personal Flotation Device (PFD), water shoes with straps (no bare feet allowed).    For the complete list, please review the  Junior Sailing Goals and Rules Spring 2021.   Please come to day 1 with a signed MYC Release and Waiver - Sailing Class.   We will also have copies.    


What Boat will my Child be Sailing On? 

Classes will be taught on age-appropriate and skill-appropriate boats that may include Optimist Dinghy, Laser Pico, and Laser 4.7 dinghy.   The instructor will make the best recommendation for your youth based on their age and abilities.

The Laser Pico 

The Laser Pico is a “in-between” boat and great for the novice and more experienced sailor. It can hold one adult comfortably or up to 3 youth, or a mix of both. For the older novice sailor, it may be a better learn-to-sail boat than the Laser 4.7. The MYC has one Laser Pico that may be used when needed.
