REGISTRATION FOR SUMMER 2020 IS OPEN — PLEASE NOTE:   Due to an abundance of caution regarding COVID-19, our operational plans are under review and may change as guidelines evolve.  At this point, we are proposing a shortened program with modifications to our traditional offering.  Safety is our primary concern, thus, we are limiting our weekly enrollment to 8 students (1 student per boat).

The Quannapowitt Yacht Club Youth Sailing Program is a registered children’s summer day camp with the Town of Wakefield’s Board of Health.  The sailing program enrolls students starting at 8 years of age and entering third grade to high school. This is a fun way to learn to sail with kids from different communities.

Camp hours are from 9AM to 12PM Monday through Friday.  Each day, boats will be prepped by instructors prior to the start of camp and sanitized and put away by instructors at the end of the daily session.  This will optimize learning time for students.
