 Junior Activities

Southern Yacht Club’s junior activities program has been hugely successful at generating talented young sailors, a number of whom have gone on to win national and international competitions, both while in school and as adults. More importantly, however, it has introduced countless children to the lifelong joys of sailing. The Junior program also offers a competitive swim team and a popular summer day camp.
