2017 youth courses begin June 5th and continue weekly through the week of August 21st.

At the Mariner Sailing School, your child will learn to sail in an atmosphere where fun, safety and responsibility are paramount. Our summer camps are a place to play, learn and grow. Children gain confidence around the water by learning safe sailing skills. Wearing lifejackets in 14' Sunfish sailboats, they learn to sail confidently and have an all-around great time. On light air days, students are taught how to safely paddle a canoe or kayak through the beautiful Dyke Marsh surrounding our marina.
