CBYC Junior Summer Sailing 2024

The CBYC Summer Program features camps beginning in June and finishing at the end of August. We offer multiple classes to meet the needs of the participants ranging from beginner to advanced from the ages of 8-18 years. The emphasis is on teaching the basics and more advanced techniques of sailing through small classes and lots of fun.

All Sailing Instructors are Certified US Sailing Instructors, as well as CPR / First Aid Certified. Program enrollment is limited, and all registrations are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis so make sure to sign up early for the session you want to ensure that you save a spot!

These are the boats we sail!



The Optimist is the most popular youth dinghy in the world, and has been designed to be safe, durable and competitive. The skills the Optimist fosters can be directly translated into other classes later on and is the ideal learning platform.

For those sailors who develop a competitive interest, the US Optimist Class Association runs several events around the country on a regular basis and provides pathways to national and international competition.



The CFJ (Collegiate Flying Junior) is a tough, agile performer available with or without a spinnaker package. It is the natural progression for Optimist sailors or for those aged out of the Optimist looking to gain first time sailing experience.

It is a fantastic choice for clubs, schools, and universities looking to introduce young sailors to double-handed sailing. The CFJ is a popular College Sailing boat and more collegiate sailing teams in North America sail the CFJ than any other double-handed sailboat.



The Club 420 enables young sailors to learn teamwork, trapeze and spinnaker techniques that simply can't be learned in single-handed boats. Safe for beginning sailors and quick enough to keep collegiate All-Americans interested, sailors graduating from the Optimist class will find the C420 to be manageable and a lot of fun.

The C420 is the most popular youth double-handed boat in the US and routinely sees events of 30-100+ boats across the country.
