Personal Flotation Devices (PFDs)

It is required that ALL sailors AT ALL TIMES on the water wear an adequate personal flotation device (PFD – proper name for life jacket). The personal flotation device 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 PFDs should NOT be used in this course. PFDs are sold by the child’s weight. If you plan to purchase your own, be sure it is the proper size! A whistle should be attached with a line to the PFD and the child’s name should be written on the PFD.

Where to buy PFD's: West Marine, Wal-Mart or dive shops are all good sources for PFDs.

Your child may borrow one of our PFDs if you do not plan to purchase a personal PFD before camp.

Cancellation and Refund Standard:

Camp registration is refundable minus a $25 cancellation fee. Registrations can be switched to another week pending availability with a $75 processing fee.

After June 1, 2024 until two weeks prior to the commencement of your booked camp, registrations cannot be refunded or transferred. However, you will receive a YSF Community Sailing Vero Beach credit, which can be utilized for future camps, private sailing lessons, or a YSFCSVB membership. No refunds or credits will be provided once your scheduled camp week begins.
