New Rochelle, NY— January 12, 2021— Huguenot Yacht Club (HYC) Junior Sailing Program announces their upcoming Open House on Sunday January 24th, 1-4pm for Huguenot’s Summer 2021 Junior Sailing Program, a full-day sailing and racing instructional program for kids and teens 8-16 years old.

“It’s an adventure-filled, local summer camp option,” says a local parent of two junior sailors at Huguenot Yacht Club (HYC) Junior Sailing Program.

Established Summer Program

Established 40 years ago, the Junior Sailing Program offers beginners and advanced sailors a safe, caring and fun sailing environment.  Coached daily by US Sailing-certified staff over the course of two Summer sessions, junior sailors will learn seamanship, on-the-water safety, and racing skills.  Last year’s program was a sold-out success as HYC pivoted to incorporate virus protocols that allowed junior sailors a summer of water recreation. Sailors will find an environment for making fast friends, enjoying organized games, refueling with provided picnic lunches and supervised free swim each afternoon in the Club’s pool. Many of our sailors are offered opportunities to participate with coach support in regattas all over the Long Island Sound.

“Learning to sail not only provides a great way for kids to become self-reliant and practice personal responsibility,” says the working parent of a new sailor, “it’s also learning a lifelong sport.”

Held outside with masking required, HYC’s Sunday January 24th Open House will introduce the program to new sailors and their parents.  Come join us to see the program boats, meet program staff, learn about COVID-19 safety precautions for the program and visit the Huguenot Yacht Club facilities.  Visit our website  for details on tuition, boat rental, session dates and Early Bird Discount offerings.
