Dear Parents and Friends of AYC Junior Sailing Programs:

The AYC 2018 Late Fall Program Sailing Sessions begin on October 29 – December 2018

A new training schedule, with the dates, times and fees for each category, is attached for both Optimist and Laser sailors. Click here – > Late Fall Semester Schedule 

Please see Neesie or Kenny-Sha  in the AYC office, to complete registration.  This late fall semester is 7 weeks long and payment must be made in full by the first day of the session.  Returning sailors will be evaluated and may be promoted based on their work in the previous session they last attended.  New participants must agree to and sign the AYC “Sailor and Parent Code of Conduct” forms before the first lesson.    If you are unsure about which category to register your sailor, please come and discuss with me.

I want to remind you that all junior members must be part of a program in order to sail out of AYC.  Having your own boat does not entitle you to sail out of the facility.  This a safety requirement and is in place to ensure that all young sailors are supervised properly.
