    A quote from Finn Hadlock our HYC 2014 Sailing Director sums up his experience;

    IMG_9076 - Version 2“For the past four years I have had the honor of working in this beautiful place. I have sweat here, cried here, had more joy than I could ever imagine, here. Here is where sailors of all kinds can come and find their own strengths, guided by their friends!”

    HYC Youth Sailing Programs facilitates the growth of junior sailing at all levels. Our coaching focuses on supporting youth sailors on all levels looking to develop their skills. Our instructors accomplish this while promoting fun, safety, self-reliance, and good sportsmanship!

    Our program is very successful thanks to the support of these fine young sailors, their families, our coaches and HYC members.
