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.

Joan Storkman is a great representation of our ALL VOLUNTEER BOARD.
Volunteer of the Year Award was created to recognize those outstanding volunteers whose unselfish and dedicated service to community sailing has made a significant difference in their community… The Volunteer of the Year Award recognizes an individual who has gone ‘above and beyond’ through their contributions without receiving any financial compensation.
