Junior Sailing


Welcome to the RYC Junior Sailing Program!  This summer we will continue to offer a varied and fun-filled program designed to encourage all sailors (both members and non-members) to improve their skills on the water. Please follow the links below for detailed information about our program:

Junior Regattas

Registration for RYC sailors competing in JSA regattas is completed online through RYC. Regatta Registration fees will be billed to your account. If you need to cancel a regatta registration please contact us as soon as possible. Projected fees for regatta fees are listed with each event, as exact fees are posted by event hosts we will update the online system accordingly. To participate in any JSA regatta your child(ren)'s JSA roster registration must also be completed annually.
