There will be two successive 4-week sessions beginning June 24, 2019

Session 1 will culminate on Family Day with swimming and sailing exhibitions, races and awards. Session 2 will finish with Family Night & Perpetual Awards. We encourage all AYC families to enroll their children or grandchildren in what will be, for many, the beginning of wonderful lifelong memories and friendships.

We continue to provide excellent sailing instruction, while focusing on the safety of our program, and integrate new ways to stimulate the campers and provide the foundation for a lifelong love of sailing.

Program details may be found in our registration packet in the Members section of the website and available at our clubhouse.  AYC Youth & Sailing Guidelines will be mailed to program registrants.

If you have any questions or need any further information about the Youth & Sailing program, please do not hesitate to email us at Avalon Sailing.

Also, each year, members of our Women’s Auxiliary prepare a range of fun activities to entertain the youth of our club including such things as Miniature Golf, an Ice Cream Social, a Junior Deck Party and the Junior Commodore’s Ball.
