The beating heart of the Fishers Island Yacht Club is its junior sailing program. We are dedicated to helping all of our youth sailors enjoy the sport, improve their skills and become lifelong sailors, whether they enjoy the adventures that come while under sail or testing themselves in the mayhem of the starting line–or both. Fishers Island Yacht Club provides a safe, fun, and high-quality environment for age appropriate training led by a core of well-prepared and enthusiastic instructors.
The FIYC junior sailing program offers a spectrum of sailing classes for kids from grade school through high school, for all experience levels and interests. The club is of course proud that “graduates” of its junior sailing program have gone on to compete – and win – at college, national, international and Olympic levels–but we are prouder of the number of sailors that attribute their lifelong love of the sea to their experience learning to sail in the Fishers Island junior sailing program.
