The 2021 LCYC Junior Sailing Program - Lessons
Due to the global pandemic the 2020 LCYC Junior Sailing program was not our typical program. The small group lessons were a success and allowed us to keep kids interested in sailing during the pandemic. We are planning on a more normal Junior Sailing program for 2021; however, we are limiting class sizes to 10 sailors to help us maintain physical distancing and healthy practices. While we will be moving forward with the normal program, as with everything during the pandemic, plans are subject to change.
Lake Champlain Yacht Club has an active junior sailing program, open to all children ages 8-17. We use Optimist prams and Flying Junior dinghies for instruction and racing. Full and half-day sessions are offered for all ability levels over an eight week period each summer. All of our Instructors are US Sailing certified and have extensive experience. We have two race weeks tentatively scheduled during the summer, the Lake Champlain Champ Chase Regatta and we travel to Lake George for the Cheeseburger Regatta!
Tuesday Evening FJ Race Clinics - LCYC will host five 1.5 hour sessions on Tuesday evenings from 5:30 to 7 PM. The clinics will be led by our racing instructors and will focus on racing strategies, boat handling, starting tactics and will be followed by a short race. Participants can use these sessions to satisfy the race clinic requirement for the Champ Chase and Cheeseburger Regattas.
Mark your calendars for these additional Junior Sailing events this summer!
