For more then 20 years we have been offering Jr. Sailing classes to the public. Our program is designed for students between the ages of 8 though 18 to introduce the sport and art of sailing.
Our youth sailing program is an extension of Burnham Park Yacht Club’s goals promoting a safe, fun environment to our youth sailors and their families. All of our instructors are U.S. Sailing Level 1 Small Boat and First AID/CPR Certified.
The Burnham Park Yacht Club Youth Sailing Program is designed to give your sailor/s an overall understanding of basic skills of sailing and seamanship to our students of all sailing ability levels. During the program, beginner students will learn basic sailing techniques from US Sailing Certified Instructors. More advanced students will learn about sailboat racing, and have the opportunity to participate in local regattas. We are able to adapt to all of our sailors needs with a low student-to-instructor ratio.
Burnham Park Yacht Club would also like to welcome the student’s parents to the yacht club. When your child is registered in our program, you are welcome to use the club. Just let the manager know you have a student in the sailing school and enjoy our bar and fine dining room. We serve lunch and dinner every day except Monday. We also have many programs and some enjoyable parties on the weekends.
