AYC junior sailors are introduced to competitive sailing and the Rules of Racing as part of the instruction in the Junior Sailing Program. Sailors interested in racing are encouraged to compete in the AYC weekend regattas, to join the AYC Racing Team that travels weekly to interclub regattas within the Mid-Atlantic Yacht Racing Association, and even to participate in other regional and national sailing events.

Details about the AYC Racing Team and other competitive opportunities for junior AYC sailors are discussed in the AYC Racing Team Information Sheet and in the AYC Racing Team section of the Junior Sailing Program Guide.
