The CYC has long fostered a passion for the sea for adults and children alike. The Club's Junior Sailing classes are open to children of members and non-members, ages 7 to 17, using the CYC's Vanguard Prams, Optimists, and Sonar keel boats. Classes are designed to give students knowledge and confidence at each level and progress to more advanced sessions during the season. Our average sailor to instructor ratio is less than 4:1 and instructors include experienced college and high school sailors.
During the summer, the CYC holds youth lessons (ages 7 to 16), in Optimists. We offer sailing lessons to our members, as well as to the general public, and offer scholarships to families who demonstrate need.
