Junior Sailing Programs

Which Junior Sailing program to choose from?

The following are the Royal St. Lawrence Programs. It is important to keep in mind the weight and height of your child since these affect which boat is most appropriate for your child to enjoy sailing. Children who sail in our programs must be able to swim and be able to get back in a boat when they capsize. The instructors will teach the children how to get back in the boat but this does require some athleticism.
