Junior Program minimum age is 8 years old at start of session. All junior sailors must pass a 50 yard swim test.
This year we will once again be offering four 2-week sessions for non racers. Sessions for race classes will still be 4 weeks each. We will also offer discounts for selecting more than one session.
Be sure to familiarize yourself with the class descriptions, which are here. Contact us if you have any questions about class placement before you begin the registration process.
Students are grouped by ability, age and size, and Instructor recommendation. Placement decisions are guided by safety considerations and the skills demonstrated by the student. As a result, we will be unable to honor requests for “friends” to be placed together, or to have a student placed in an inappropriate class to accommodate a family’s schedule. We recognize that students mature and progress at different rates, and some movement from class to class may occur during a session.
More information, including what to bring to class, can be found in our handbook.
In order to become enrolled in our Junior Sailing Program, juniors are required to become members of the Sandy Bay Yacht Club. Membership offers a variety of social activities, including beach cookouts, movie nights, and more. Junior members will also have access to boats outside of class time, once certified by the instructors. This membership fee ($92.00 each in 2018) is in addition to the tuition charges for lessons, and is paid to the Yacht Club. You will be billed by the Yacht Club separately for your membership, as this is not included in the online registration process. Membership dues are to be paid prior to your first class.
You will need: credit card information (or e-check information: your checking account# and your bank’s routing#), Medical Insurer, Policy#, student’s health information, emergency contact information and more… be sure to have that information handy.
Limited financial aid is available. Requests for scholarships will be considered in the order they are received, and must be postmarked by March 7, 2019. We do not grant 100% scholarships… you still need to pay membership dues to Sandy Bay Yacht Club, as well as partial tuition. Scholarship Application.
You can log back into your account one of two ways. Using the same Register button above, login as a Returning User if you want to register an additional student. If you are trying to access your online account to make additional payments towards your balance or to view your statement and other registration information, please select the Online Account button option, or use this link: Online Customer Account
You will receive occasional emails about the Sailing Program as well as junior social activities.
We also have an online calendar of various junior activities.
Occasionally people register for the wrong class. If we notice this, you will be notified by the Program Director and we’ll take steps to correct the situation.
There will be no refunds for classes unless there is a medical condition that makes it so a student cannot participate in sailing. A doctor’s note will be required. There will however be a non-refundable deposit of $20.00 for each class.
