2019 ABYC Summer Sailing Camp

Welcome to Alamitos Bay Yacht Club’s Junior Summer Sailing!



ABYC’s annual summer sailing camp kicks off the last week of June and runs for six weeks until the first week of August. Our sailing camp runs Monday through Friday, offering a wide variety of experiences for youth in the Southern California Area. Sailors get the full Summer Camp Experience, with most classes running 9:00am to 4:00pm, with certain classes only running 1:00pm-4:00pm. Classes range from beginning sailing all the way through advanced racing, teaching essential skills such as knot tying, water safety, critical thinking, seamanship, and club racing.

Summer Camp at ABYC is designed to help all types of sailors follow their passion and fall in love with the sport. All of our programs emphasize safety, learning, and most importantly, fun! Programs are taught in the Naples Sabot, International Optimist, Club FJ, and Laser.

 If you are unsure which class your sailor should be in, please contact the Junior Sailing Director.
