Youngstown Junior Sailing Program, which is operated at YYC by the Youngstown Junior Sailing Foundation, has been a resounding success for more than forty years. Our teaching philosophy is that one learns best by doing. Consequently, our program features on-the-water sailing 5 full days a week.
Sailors aged 7-17 are instilled with a love of sailing, along with the fundamental sailing skills, that they can build upon; they receive instruction in safe boating, seamanship, dinghy sailing, sailboat racing, and boat maintenance. And the friendships made in the Junior Program can be the most enduring they make. Some last a lifetime. The Junior Sailing Program is open to both members and non-members.
