Sailing Classes at Kaneohe Yacht Club
Junior sailing classes at Kaneohe Yacht Club range from beginning how-to-sail to advanced racing techniques. The mission of the junior sailing program is to provide a superior and comprehensive sailing curriculum for tweens and teens of all ages and abilities. This sport is as much for girls as it is for boys. The sailing curriculum at Kaneohe Yacht Club provides an interactive learning environment. Lessons are challenging yet fun. New skills are positively reinforced on the water. Classes are taught by experienced instructors with U.S. sailing teaching certifications and Red Cross CPR and first aid training. Instructors strive to be role models, promoting sportsmanship and safety above all. They encourage camaraderie and respect for fellow students. Many students develop personal connections with their peers and instructors. We see a number of our students return session after session while they move on with their friends to more advanced classes. Every year, several of our sailors compete in national and international junior sailing competitions. Many of our older sailors go on to successfully compete on high school and college sailing teams. Some of our students have even gone on to be world class and Olympic sailors. These classes are a lot of fun and for some kids sailing is a perfect fit and a lifelong activity. Give it a try.
