Junior Sail Activities

Spring And Fall After-School Instructional Clinics

Weather dependent, weekly instructional clinics, usually on Saturday or Sunday afternoons, will start in April, and conclude the first week of June in the Spring, and the 3rd week of August through to end of October in the Fall. Participation in the clinics is an excellent way to build skills for those interested in trying out for racing and for all our Bay Racers to prepare and practice for their travel competition.

SUMMER CAMP PROGRAM- Bay Racer Travel Team

NERYC facilitates opportunities for juniors to travel and compete in an extensive schedule of away regattas that are held at other Yacht Clubs around the bay each season. The club assists with equipment, transport and coaching. Our travel trailers are equipped to transport Optis, Lasers, 420's and coach boats. Attending the away regattas requires a lot of coordination and parental support. Team activities and travel is coordinated by a travel team manager.

NOR (Notice of Race) documents and entry information, is on the CBYRA web site at this location: CBYRA Junior Announcements.  

Bay Racer Travel Team And Summer Program Attendance - Most  sessions include away races. As it is the most effective way to get the dedicated practice, continued skill development and proper coaching required for competition over the summer, all travel team participants are expected to register for a minimum of two summer program sessions regardless of how many regattas they plan to attend. We strongly encourage racers to participate in 4,6, or 8 sessions. To take advantage of concentrated coaching and proper preparation please plan to register for sessions 1 and 2. For more program details go to Summer Programs

Junior Club Membership - For insurance and liability purposes, either Junior Membership or Family Membership is required for Junior sailors representing NERYC at away regattas. Membership will ultimately pay for itself with the savings recognized member pricing versus non-member pricing.

US Sailing and CBYRA Membership - We recommend Bay Racers become members of the following organizations:
US Sailing. Sailors must be members to compete in the Junior Olympics, Sailors also qualify for discounts. Find out about the benefits and discounts offered via our
US Sailing Member Value Partner Program
Chesapeake Bay Yacht Racing Assoc (CBYRA) -

The annual dues for both organizations are nominal and the benefits worthwhile.
