This list is intended to be a resource tool for families and individuals who are interested in joining a local junior sailing program.

 

Many clubs are actively seeking new members, but not all of them. Nearly all the junior sailing programs listed are an integral part of a private, community or country club so membership is required.

 

Application processes, initiation fees and annual dues vary widely. Some programs require full family membership, others offer junior memberships at reduced rates. We have included this information, when available, for each program. Many of the listed contacts are volunteers.

 

The letters N/A mean only that we have not confirmed this information. Program Heads - please contact us if any information we have listed for your program is inaccurate.
