- Children age 8 through 6th grade can learn to sail in our Saturday programs or in our popular summer camps. Those who attend Beachland Elementary, Osceola Magnet, Gifford Middle School, Vero Beach Academy, or St. Edward's School can join the fun of our afterschool squadron program.
- Our JV program is open to grades 7 and up, even if you're just starting out. Those whose spirit of adventure includes a competitive nature may find their niche on the Varsity team.
- Youth (and adults) with a variety of special needs, as well as military veterans, may enjoy our Adaptive Sailing program, with specialized boats and qualified instructors.
Many of our programs are offered free of charge to Indian River County residents. Private lessons, competitive teams, and summer camp carry appropriate fees, and need-based scholarships are often available.
