WYCYF Junior Sail 2017 Program Overview

Start the adventure of a lifetime by learning to sail this summer! The Junior Sail program of the WYC Youth Foundation has been ‘making sailors’ for over 50 years. Beginners learn to rig and sail small boats in the protected waters of Waukegan Harbor. Experienced sailors hone skills on Lake Michigan. Safety is a priority: Instructors are trained in CPR and boating safety; lead teachers are U.S. Sailing Level 1 certified. Participants must complete a brief swim test and wear closed-toe shoes. Life vests, boats and safety equipment are provided.

We are expanding the 2017 program to include KinderSail classes for children ages 5-8. We also now offer experienced sailors a choice between extending their knowledge with Adventure Sailing or honing their skills with our racing program. Classes are broken up into morning and afternoon sessions. KinderSail classes are in the early evenings.
