Junior Sailing -Adult

General Information
Norwalk Yacht Club's Junior Sailing program is for sailors age 8 to 18. Beginners generally start in single handed Optimists, advance through double-handed Pixels, C420s and single-handed Lasers. Non-members are welcome, and the Club has a full fleet of charters available.

Program hours are as follows:
Morning class: 8:30 am - 12 noon. Beginner and Intermediate Optimists
Afternoon class: 1 pm - 5 pm. Advanced Optimist, Pixels, C420s and Lasers.

Sailors 14+ years old can participate in our Big Boat Program for an additional nominal fee. Practice times are generally after regular program hours and on weekends. The program culminates in local Big Boat regattas.

The Norwalk Yacht Club Junior Sailing Program registration period is officially open, and we are very excited to have a great team of instructors and sailing coaches again this year. Please email JrSailing@norwalkyachtclub.com with any questions.

Thanks to all the busy parents whose applications are already in. Norwalk Yacht Club has a limited amount of Optimists, Pixels and C420s for charter. If you would like to charter a Club boat, don't forget to include a charter agreement with your application. Charters are on a first come first serve basis. We encourage teams to pair up for Pixels and C420s but in the event your sailor does not have a partner, please email us at JrSailing@norwalkyachtclub.com. We will make every attempt to find a pairing. If your sailor is 14+ and would like to participant in our Big Boat program, please complete the Big Boat section on the application.

We're looking forward to another great summer of sailing and hope you'll join us.
