Safety Oriented Sailing Instruction for Area Youth

Since our pilot program in 2016, the Havre de Grace Youth Sailing Program has offered sailing instruction for students between 7 and 17 years of age. We use US Sailing certified instructors to foster a safe and supportive learning environment, helping students develop confidence and character, while developing an appreciation for our local environment.

The Program is managed by an all-volunteer Board of Directors, who strive to ensure that every participant succeeds.

The Details:

  • Classes are open to all within the age restriction
  • All participants must pass a basic swim test (with life jacket)
  • Instructors are US Sailing Certified
  • Student-to-instructor ratio never exceeds 10-to-1
  • And we have a Red Cross certified water safety instructory

Our Students Have Fun While Learning About:

  • Water safety and boating safety

  • Maritime rules of the road
  • Nautical history
  • Advanced topics in sailing (as appropriate)
  • Expanding their youth experience resume
