Our Mission
The Kingston Yacht Club Junior Sailing Program exists to teach and promote water safety, the sport of sailing, and encourage skill development in a safe environment for young people in the Kingston community. The program emphasizes the enjoyment and lifetime benefit of active participation in sport.

We provide a safe and fun learning environment for young sailors, and:

  • Teach young people safe boat handling, seamanship, and sportsmanship;
  • Help young people learn to sail;
  • Help young people learn techniques of one-design racing and to help them fully develop their one-design racing skills; and
  • Promote youth sailing competition.

Our overall goals are simple: Safety, fun, and success.

KYC has a long tradition of great coaches, clear waters and an amazing location to spend a few weeks in the summer. From beginners at any age to advanced racers who have sailed the world’s most famous waterways, KYC offers day camps, clinics and off-season training.

KYC has been a leader in junior sailing nationally and internationally for more than 100 years. Thousands of sailors have had the opportunity to experience sailing through KYC. Sailors from KYC’s Junior Sailing Program have gone on to compete in collegiate, national, and world competitions; including America’s Cup, and Olympic competitions while developing a lifelong passion and love for the sport.
