Jackson Park Yacht Club Foundation is offering youth sailing lessons for children ages 8 to 14 beginning in Summer 2017.
Classes are held Monday to Friday from 9:00 am to 3:30 pm (rain or shine) for 2 weeks each.
Instruction takes place in Jackson Park Outer Harbor and in Lake Michigan and includes both classroom and hands-on on-the-water activities.
Classes are taught by US Sailing Certified Instructors who are also AID/CPR certified. Class size is limited, coached and supervised by multiple instructors assuring both safety and fun.
JPYC maintains a fleet of 12 sailboats specifically reserved for junior sailors. Both novice and beginner sailors can learn to sail on safe, dry and simple boats which are ideal for teaching new sailors.
The cost for members is $275 and for non-members is $375 per session (with discounts available for siblings enrolled together and/or multiple sessions). Additionally, we may have a limited number of scholarships available for financial need students.
