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.

Registration Process, Step-by-Step Guide:

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.

  • If this is your first time using our online registration, click the “Register Now” button above and enter the system as a “New User” (after you create your account, you can login with your email address and password… more info below). If you have previously used our online system login as a Returning User.
  • Select the age of the sailor… if you are registering more than one student, you must register one sailor at a time – you will have an option later in the process to add additional students.
  • Select a class for the sailor… if you have any questions regarding class placement, contact us ( before you begin the registration process.
    • Be sure to select each session desired for each student.
    • If you see WAITLIST: printed before the class name, that means the class is full. The number of “Open Spots” you see will be the number of waitlisted spots available. There is a non-refundable administrative fee of $10.00 to be added to the waitlist to offset our costs. You’ll be notified if a spot opens up but we cannot guarantee that it will. If a spot is opened up the $10 will be credited to your account.
  • Enter Student information. Data fields preceded by a * are required fields.
  • Next you will need to provide Parent/Guardian information and Emergency Contact information for the student.
  • Add more students:
    • At Cart page you’ll see a detail of the student’s registration, and have the option to add additional students.
    • To do so click the Go button to add a New Student and repeat the steps beginning with the student’s age.
    • You’ll see that most fields are already pre-filled, so if any of that info doesn’t apply to this next student, simply delete the data and enter new data.
  • Scholarship Information: If you are the recipient of a scholarship, and you are registering more than one student, do not enter the Scholarship Code on the Cart page until you register all students/classes. The code only works once. See more about Scholarships below.
  • When you are through entering all the required information, click the Checkout button. The next page will ask you to sign up for an account with an email and password. In the future you can login to your account with this login information. More about this below.
  • Make a payment with a credit card or eCheck. You can pay the whole amount now, or just pay a deposit. If you elect to pay a deposit, your credit card or eCheck will be automatically billed on the due date for the balance. The due date is the first day of classes. If you have a balance and wish to pay in person with a paper check or cash, we’ll enter the payment into the system to credit your account. You can also make a payment on your account by logging into the system and paying with a credit card online. If you have an outstanding balance your credit card will be billed for the full amount owed prior to the start of the first class for the session you select.
  • You must then read the Waiver and accept & sign it.
  • Once you place the order, a confirmation page will appear, and you will also receive an email confirmation.


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.

Class Changes:

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.
