Welcome to the Eastport Yacht Club 2013 Junior Fleet program. The Mission of the Eastport Yacht Club Jr. Fleet is to support a Learn-to-Sail program that teaches student the basics of boathandling, seamanship, safety, and sportsmanship. The program strives to develop competence and confidence in our sailors in a safe and fun learning environment.
Our sailing lessons, offered to kids ages 5-15 and adults 16 and up, are taught by US Sailing Certified instructors with First Aid and CPR training. The EYC program emphasizes safety, learning, and foremost FUN, by teaching sailing, seamanship, navigational skills, plus an introduction to racing. Our program helps participants develop self-reliance, self-regulation, sportsmanship, knowledge and respect for the environment while ensuring boating safety awareness. With a combination of classroom time and on the- water time, classes are designed to teach the basic skills of sailing to beginners and to help hone the skills of more advanced students. The EYC Learn-to-Sail Program uses three types of boats: the Optimist Dinghy, Open Bic, and the Club FJ! Click here to view Frequently Asked Questions.
