COVID Notice:
Please note that all of our programs are COVID-dependent and are subject to change based on COVID regulations and participant safety. Our first priority this summer is the safety of our sailors, coaching staff, and club members.

The nature of the sport of sailing means that there is potential for close contact between participants and forceful exhalation while sailing. For this reason, proof of full vaccination, or a valid medical exemption, is required for all participants and staff of KYC Learn to Sail programs.

Membership Credit Book:
Full Family members will receive a credit book equal to 15% of paid program fees, which can be used for Food & Beverage, Regalia, and Gas Dock purchases. This replaces the previous membership discount.

Ages 7-11

Opti Beginner

Sailors in this program will participate in exciting KYC traditions such as trips to Cedar Island and White Mountain Ice-Cream.
