WPYC Experiences For Sailors 11 through 16 years old

On-the-water sailing experiences this summer on larger sailing yachts can be arranged with some of WPYC’s most experienced sailors. Small group outings (both half day and overnight) can be set up as scheduling permits. Families may accompany young sailors. Learn docking, handling lines, hoisting and lowering sails, use of winches, steering a course, safety procedures, sail trim, sailing terms, basic navigation (reading charts, recognizing landmarks, etc.), and anchoring.
