Jr Sail Program

MRYC Junior Sail Program

Welcome to the Miles River Yacht Club Junior Sail Program! Our Sailing School is for kids 6 to 17 years old with beginner, intermediate, and experienced sailors classes. Our primary training boat is the Optimist dinghy, but we also use the Club 420 as our double-handed boat for older students. The Club 420 is perfect because it's a common boat for many high school and collegiate sailing programs.

We are a certified Maryland State Camp and have been teaching sailing to kids since 1970. Being a certified State Camp means that we meet several standards required by the State. These include health, safety, staff qualifications, instructor/student ratios, and we successfully pass yearly unscheduled inspections. We provide a fun, safe, and educational environment for your students!

Did you know that you can look up all the certified camps in the state of Maryland? You sure can! We're license number "20-YC-8946".

Our program includes multiple full-day sessions running from mid-June to mid-August. You can sign up for as many sessions as fit your schedule.

All of our coaches are highly qualified, and we enjoy a low student-to-instructor ratio. Most of our instructors are certified by US Sailing to teach, while all have come up through junior, High School, or college sailing programs.

There are many opportunities for students to participate in regattas if they choose. We hold one major regatta at Miles River, the MRYC Junior Regatta, near the end of the summer. The Racing Team sailors travel around the Bay to different venues over the summer, creating a close bond among team members. For more advanced students not interested in competition, we also offer classes to explore longer cruises, big boat experiences, and instruction on navigation and electronics.
