Youth Sailling Program with Hudson River Maritime Museum in Kingston, NY

KINGSTON – Youth Sailing Program @ Hudson River Maritime


Monday, July 29 – Friday, August 2, 2019


9 am – 4 pm


For ages 9 – 18


General Registration: $450; Late registration (IF space is available after June 1st): $500

Household Members & Above: $405; Late registration (IF space is available after June 1st): $450



Join us for this exciting week-long sailing program where students aged 9-18 learn the basics of sailing on 8′ Optimist Prams, 19′ Lightning class sailing dinghies, and other sailboats. Each day will feature short “chalk talks,” and brief learning activities on land and lots of on-the water instruction with games, drills, and informal races on the Rondout Creek and the Hudson River. The goal at the end of each week is for all students to feel comfortable sailing on the water to become capable, safe basic sailors.


Because each week will consist of mixed ages and experience levels, our U.S. Sailing Certified instructors will adapt the program to match the needs of the students.


A minimum of fourteen students is required for each sailing program week. If a week lacks the minimum number of registrants by June 1, it will be cancelled, participants will be contacted, and they will be offered the opportunity to move their registration to another week.
