One-Week Summer Sailing Camps

June - July 2020

Check back in March 2020 for registration information

Youth Sailing Foundation (YSF) partners with local clubs to offer a Summer Sailing Camp that combines the sailing expertise of YSF with world class facilities. Located on the barrier island the host clubs offer the perfect venue for beginner sailors with protected coves off the Indian River Lagoon, huge swimming pool, indoor classroom facilities, and all the amenities for lunch and other activities.

With weekly enrollment limited to eighteen, your child or grandchild will get closely supervised instruction in a safe and fun atmosphere.

Camp is one week, Monday through Friday from 9 AM to 3 PM. Age limit is 8 through 13 yrs.

All participants must pass a swim test administered by YSF’s certified instructor on first day of camp.

Sailing Buddies

Required Equipment for Camp:

  • Life jacket (Type III) that fits the child (see Life Jackets below)
  • Refillable water bottle

  • Sunscreen
  • Swim suit and T-shirt
  • Change of clothes
  • Towel

  • Hat or cap
  • Backpack to store above gear when not in use

Life Jackets

It is required that ALL sailors AT ALL TIMES wear an adequate personal flotation device (PFD – proper name for life jacket). This life jacket (PFD) needs to be a brightly colored, Coast Guard approved, Type III or better with no collar that can get caught on the boat rigging. Type V inflatable life jackets should NOT be used in this course. PFDs are sold by the child’s weight. Be sure to purchase the proper size! A whistle should be attached with a line to the life jacket and the child’s name should be written on the life jacket.

K-Mart, West Marine, Wal-Mart or dive shops are all good sources for these.
