Summer Sailing Program for Kids
At our New York City Summer Sailing Program for Kids, students learn teamwork, planning and responsibility in an exciting and challenging atmosphere while at the same time discovering one of the world's oldest and most rewarding sports.
Kids ages 9-15 learn to trim sails, tie knots and man the helm aboard modern sailboats. Our sailing curriculum, combined with our team and self esteem building activities, help young sailors to build confidence, bolster self-reliance, and fulfill their inner potential – and have tons of fun while doing it!
Safety is our highest priority. While we want our participants to experience the thrill of sailing, we employ the utmost vigilance and expertise to keep them safe in the process. Activities are carefully planned and overseen. Our vessels are manned by experienced instructors who are licensed by the United States Coast Guard and trained in First Aid and CPR. Children wear lifejackets at all times when on the dock or on boats.
In the event emergency medical attention is required, our launches give quick access to shore-based emergency personnel. The Atlantic Yachting fleet is always within range of radio and telephone contact of emergency services and also has a direct connection to the United States Coast Guard. We have a perfect safety record and use all available means to keep your child safe and happy on the water.
