The QYC YSP goal is to provide a safe, encouraging environment for students ages 8-13 to learn to sail, to develop their sailing skills, or learn to race. The YSP focuses on the fun, enjoyment, accomplishment, and self-confidence that results from learning to sail. Our instruction is based on US SAILING curriculum, and is carried out in age and skills appropriate classes. There are also group activities that encourage social interactions and friendships among the students.
Students learn skills that will form the foundation for a lifelong love of sailing. They also learn the proper use and care of boats, sails, moorings and the docking area. Safety standards are taught and strictly enforced.
The Youth Sailing Program at Quannapowitt Yacht Club utilizes the US Sailing Curriculum "Learn Sailing Right!", and students who attend the program can become certified Small Boat Sailors by mastering the skills in the "Little Red Book". More details about the US Sailing Curriculum and certification are available here.
