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.

What kids say
This was the best time ever at camp. I got to learn to sail. I came back 2 years in a row because it was so much fun. Thank you Nana for sending me.... Bill H
GHYC Junior Sailing has been so great for me. I first learned to sail in 2009 and began racing with GHYC as soon as the team began. Since then, I have also taught at sail camps and helped coach the race team. I am currently a sophomore at University of Washington, while trying to find as much time as possible to get on the water with the Husky Sailing Team. ... Bekah A
