Rocky Point is a small, family-oriented club that first opened in 1927. Located in Old Greenwich, CT on the Long Island Sound, the club has a long history of enthusiastic amateur sailing. We have a very active Opti, Feva, Laser and Ideal 18 junior sailing program for 40-50 children ranging in age from 6-16 years. We also have an Ideal 18 adult sailing program that runs two evenings a week with a Saturday regatta series.

The instructors will support our junior and adult programs with a focus on teaching sailing in a safe and fun environment while following US Sailing guidelines.
