Welcome to GHYC Junior Sail

We are about fun, friends, adventure and learning life-long skills on the water
GHYC Junior Sail is a non-profit organization created to promote youth sailing through award winning summer camp for kids and teens. Our goal is to provide access to sailing to girls and boys, ages 6 to18 with no sailing experience up to racing level sailors. We build self-esteem, teamwork and a respect for the environment. We run programs in instruction, competitive racing, and community outreach.

Our program is designed to bring out the best in kids.
We want to instill life long skills.

We teach:

  • Safety as a top priority
  • Teamwork
  • Discipline, individual and team
  • Skills through fun games
  • The joy of sailing

When I told my friends I was taking Sailing Camp, they signed up too. We all learned a lot and I appreciate the water and our Harbor even more. Brianna
The skills I’ve learned in sailing have impacted me at home, at school and at my work—especially in how I handle difficult situations. Sailing is not only a sport but a foundation to great values that transfer into all aspects of my life.”. … Dalton
