    2018 Junior Sailing - Printable Version (PDF version)

    As the summer rapidly approaches, we are preparing for yet another wonderful junior sailing season at the Normandy Beach Yacht Club. We have hired a terrific new group of instructors with a wealth of experience and are busy finalizing a fun and creative program!

    The structure of the sailing program will remain substantially similar to last year with junior lessons broken up by ability into three-hour morning and afternoon sessions as designated by our staff. Wednesday races will return as a full day session, aimed to introduce our young sailors to the world of racing in a safe, fun and informal manner. For our more experienced sailors, we hope to build on the success of last year's season, which saw a post-Sandy record participation in regattas from NBYC! Our kids will compete in at least one Interclub against the likes of LYC, MYC, MYC, and BHYC, while numerous larger regattas are planned throughout the Bay. Please see either our calendar or the BBYRA website www.bbyra.org for more details.

    This year NBYC will makes its fleet of Optimist Prams and Club 420s available for rent to junior sailors on a first come, first served basis. To clarify pricing, we have broken out the cost of lessons and the cost of equipment rentals. Should you supply your own boat, the rental fee is obviously waived. You will find the lesson fee to be extremely competitive to other alternative activities in the area, while the rental fee will be set aside to maintain our fleet for future sailors. The combined fee is effectively the same as the fees from 2017. However, we strongly encourage the purchase of sailboats for sailors who have participated in the Jr. Sailing Program for more than 1 year.

    All members and returning participants are guaranteed a spot in our program if they respond by June 1, 2018. After that date, we will be aggressively marketing to attract new participants for the season. Additionally, all junior sailors who sign up for four or more weeks this year will receive a terrific new NBYC sailing performance t-shirt. Lastly, you will see below that the sailor categories have been altered modestly to match each sailor's ability and interest level. Below is a description of each clinic so you can more accurately select the pricing scheme associated.
    • Puddle Ducks (ages 6-7) early morning introduction to sailing
    • Optimist Novice (ages 8+) morning lessons for beginner sailors, two per boat.
    • Optimist Intermediate (ages 8+) morning or afternoon lessons for intermediate sailors, one per boat
    • Racing Optimist/Laser (ages 10+) afternoon lessons plus interclub and regattas
    • Racing Club 420 (ages 12+) afternoon lessons plus interclub and regattas

    As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out. We look forward to seeing you at the club soon.
