Hempstead Harbour Club’s 2017 Junior Sailing program is an affordable, fun-filled and educational program training both first time sailors as well as experienced racers. Sailors 8-15 years old learn sailing skills, seamanship and water safety while more advanced sailors refine their racing skills and participate in regattas. Open to non-members! Your child’s lifetime on the water can start this summer.
HHC Junior Sailing’s mission is to teach kids the fundamentals of sailing in a safe and fun environment through a gradual progression of instruction designed for everyone from first-timers to experienced racers. Beginning sailors as young as 8 years old learn basic sailing skills, seamanship and water safety, while Intermediate and advanced sailors refine their skills and learn racing tactics in preparation for sanctioned JSA regattas scheduled throughout the summer.
Our 2017 program includes a seven-week session and a four-week session beginning Monday, June 26th as well as a three-week session starting on July 24th. All sessions have both half-day/mornings (9:30-12:30) or full days (9:30-3:30) available. All sessions held Monday thru Thursday and are led by the Club’s staff of US Sailing-certified instructors.
Program Note: The 2nd Session (3 week) is now full and closed to registration.
