Be a part of the MYC Junior Race Team!

2015jrTeam-300x171Racing is a fun and exciting way to enjoy the sport of sailing. Being part of a team of fellow sailors builds friendships that last a lifetime!

The MYC Junior Racing Program offers youth sailors age 8-19 the opportunity for adventure, to learn leadership and communication skills,  and experience the thrill of sailboat racing.

Experienced sailors will spend their summer sharpening their skills with a flexible program designed to give them abundant time on the water.  Team members will have the opportunity to sail Monday through Thursday to improve their skills.  Race team practice will take the form of weekly regattas and will give our team racing skills and build confidence on the water. They will learn the racing rules, how regattas are conducted and gain competitive experience through on-the-water coaching and mentoring.

Race team practices are held Wednesday afternoons from 3:00 pm until 5:30 pm beginning June 23, 2021
