Beginner Level / Intermediate Level and Advanced Level - 8-16 years
Racers - 9-18 years

NERYC's summer 'Learn To Sail' camp and Bay Racer program for kids follows universally accepted methods of teaching sailing and operates within the guidelines prescribed by
us sailing. Our training fleet consists of Optimists, Lasers, Flying Juniors and Club 420 dinghies.

Learning, safety and fun are the cornerstones of our
curriculum and our young sailors are taught using a combination of lectures, visual aids, practical drills and extensive on the water practice at our facility, which is a convenient commute for residents of Northern Maryland and surrounding the tri-state areas.

Beginners learn the basics, intermediate sailors build their competence in boat handling and sail trim and are introduced to the fundamentals of racing.  Advanced sailors perfect their skills and build their competence by working on advanced boat handling and sail trim, as well as developing their knowledge of the rules and tactics of racing. At this level sailors become eligible to join our travel team and compete in regional sailing regattas. Our young sailors have a such a great time at camp that many spend their entire summer with us and return year after year (see reviews).
Sessions fill quickly so early registration is essential.
