2017 Summer Sail Camps

CYC offers sailing camps to children of abilities.  Whether you want your beginner to enjoy his or her first time on the water or your seasoned racer to perfect roll-tacking, CYC offers a fun, safe way for your child to enjoy sailing.


Since 2015, we have partnered with Sail Sand Point to provide qualified, trained instructors for our camps. All instructors are U.S. Sailing certified and CPR/First Aid trained, have a Washington Boater safety card and have passed a WA State background check. Many have years of personal sailing and teaching experience. Some are even collegiate sailors.


Camps run Monday to Friday, 9:30am-4pm (9-9:30 am drop off; 4-4:30pm pick up). Not all camp levels are available every week so sign up early!

Beginner Opti – Starting to Sail!

This camp introduces kids to the basics of sailing a small boat by putting them in the driver’s seat of an Opti sailboat. The main focus of this repeatable camp is the development of basic skills for a strong sailing foundation. By the end of camp most sailors will be able to put together an Opti and have some control of the boat in light breeze. This camp is a good fit for brand new sailors and returning beginning sailors alike.
