Junior Sailing Camp

Each different type or class of boat will normally form a fleet. Boats in a fleet race against one another. Fleets also conduct a multitude of organized functions throughout the year, both during the sailing season and during the winter months. The real benefit of fleets is that they provide a great resource for learning how to sail.  Check out the Fleets page to get a sense of what we have to offer. See a type of boat that peaks your interest? Contact the fleet captain listed on the page. Likely he can connect you with a sailor who will be happy to share some sailing experience with you.
