Youth Sailing Classes at Two Rivers
Young people and children take naturally to sailing. We are specialists in teaching children to sail. Our sailing program for children was developed , by us, from the Royal Yachting Association Young Sailors Program which breaks down the learning process into many stages so that each child can learn at his or her own pace. Courses run Monday to Friday, 9.30 to 3.30.
Stage 1 (Introduction)
Stage 2 (Basic)
Stage 3 (Improvers)
Stage 4 (Advanced)
Stage 5 ( Pre – Instructor)
Race Training Course
We have been using this program for years and have successfully taught hundreds of young people from age 6 upwards to sail with confidence and have fun! We use Optimists, Sunfish, Lasers , and believe in having each child sailing their own boat from the first day.
Our Williamsburg location is at Two Rivers Yacht & Country Club where we offer summer sailing programs for kids.
We have been running the sailing program at Two Rivers Yacht Club in Governors Land in Williamsburg since 2001. This program is made open to the public in an ongoing effort by Two Rivers Yacht Club to introduce sailing to more and more young people.
The fleet here is comprised of Optimists (the international children’s boat, suitable for kids from age 6 to age 12) , 420’s (two man performance dinghy with spinnaker, suitable for teenagers) , Sunfish (suitable for teenagers) . We sail from the beach here – the river is very shallow which makes it very easy to launch and to return to the beach.
You should be Sailing !
By the end of the week, they will have enough confidence and enough skill to make a boat go anywhere they want. We take great care to treat each child as an individual and never to frighten them by asking them to do something before they are ready.
Children can move up through the stages of the program from one year to the next, and for the more advanced young sailors we run Race Training and Team Racing courses.
