High School Youth Sailing Club
Students from Highland Park, Deerfield, and other nearby high schools may join the North Shore Sailing Club. Membership includes a Junior Membership in the North Shore Yacht Club, which supplies the boats and equipment used by the club.
The Sailing Club meets on Sundays from mid-August through mid-October. Sailing begins at 10:00 am and ends at 12:30 pm. See the club Calendar under our Events tab for specific dates.
Sailing Club members receive instruction and on the water supervision in basic sailing skills and safety practices. Sail racing instruction and practice is also available for interested members, which includes the opportunity to participate in NSYC club racing and to race competitively against other high school teams. Once certified in boats, typically Sunfish and club 420's, Junior Members may sail for fun on club sailing days as well as at other times, when at least two adult members of North Shore Yacht Club are also sailing and aware of their presence.
Parents of young people who want to sail are encouraged to join the NSYC with a full membership, which includes Junior Memberships for member's children. That way everyone in the family can enjoy the sailing and social opportunities the club offers. All members, including Junior Members, must be certified for each boat type by an NSYC Instructor. There are modest separate fees for adult sailing lessons and high school youth sailing club participation.
