Junior Sailing  

CCYC's youth sailing program is a parent-involved group that aims to encourage and develop the sailing and water-related skills of our children (ages 7 to 18) through instructional and peer-to-peer interaction in a structured yet fun and social educational environment. Junior Fleet was re-established in 1996 to develop knowledgeable youth sailors and instill in them a love of the sport of boating that will serve as a foundation for their future and that of CCYC. No previous sailing experience is necessary to join. Any parents seeking additional information should contact  juniorsailing@corinthian.org.
