General Information

Of all our Club’s activities, one of the most successful is unquestionably the Junior Sailing Program. This happy development started in 1955, by which time YYC had become a “big boat” Club. Thirteen members, with 43 children among them, joined together to purchase a fleet of dinghies. By the early 1960s, these dinghies were made available for a Club-sponsored program with instructors. By the 1970s, the program grew from volunteer instructors to a paid staff, and to a top-notch operation. The Youngstown Yacht Club is proud of its heritage, and continues to support the traditions of the sport of sailing in all Club activities. Our Junior Sailing Program, which is operated at the Youngstown Yacht Club by the Youngstown Junior Sailing Foundation, has been a resounding success for more than forty years. Our teaching philosophy revolves around safety, fun, and learning. Consequently, our instructors are all trained by US Sailing and US Powerboating and held to the latest safety practices and standards. Our well trained instructor staff are dedicated to creating a safe and fun learning experience on the water. Sailors aged 7-17 are instilled with a love of sailing, along with the fundamental sailing skills that they can build upon. Children receive instruction in safe boating, seamanship, dinghy sailing, sailboat racing, and boat maintenance. Daily lessons are broken down into classroom, on land demonstrations, and on the water lessons. Whatever the age or experience of your child, we have a program that fits. The friendships made in the Junior Program can be the most enduring friendships they make! Some last a lifetime. The Junior Sailing Program is open to both members and non-members. Sessions are weekly only and programs run Monday-Friday from 9am-4pm from June 25th through August 10th.
