2019 SWYC - YSA Learn to Sail Programs for Youth and Adults

SWYC - Youth Sailing Association provides sailing instruction to the South Whidbey community youth and adult residents and visitors.

Our Youth Learn to Sail day camp teaches Beginning and Intermediate sailors from ages 10 to 16 the basics of sailing. Each youth student is assigned their own sailing dinghy in each week-long session.

The Adult Learn to Sail program uses the SF Pelican, a two person 12 ft. boat. Instruction includes 8 hours of mostly on-the-water hands-on learning.

The courses combine shore-side learning with lots of on-the-water, hands on the tiller experience. In addition to sailing, students learn boating safety, basic seamanship and knot tying. The focus is on being safe, learning sailing concepts and having fun. Courses use the US Sailing instruction guide and our lead instructors are US Sailing certified.
