SHYC's JR Sailing Program is a successful, long-running sailing program with approximately 60 sailors from ages 6 to 16. The JR program’s strengths are in fostering a love of sailing, respect for the water, and teaching sailing, seamanship, and racing. Our waterfront includes launch service from sunrise to sunset, 6 club owned 420, 6 RS Feva, 1 club owned Sonar, and active racing fleets of private Optis, Sonars, and Laser, and floating docks for member usage.
