YSF Public sailing 2.PNG

Introduced in 2014, adult sailing at YSF has grown in popularity as adults of all ages and sailing skills have come to enjoy expert sailing instruction and warm camaraderie. We offer sailing classes and private lessons, as well as boat rentals for those who are ready to sail solo. Experience the beautiful panorama of sea and sky while skimming along the protected waters of the Indian River Lagoon. All income from YSF Community Sailing helps fund our beginner youth and special needs programs offered free of charge to Indian River County residents.
