For more than 30 years the Agamenticus Yacht Club has taught youngsters the basics of sailing, seamanship and safe conduct on the water. In order of importance, the AYC Junior Sailing Program focuses on safety, enjoyment and knowledge of sailing. Classes meet rain or shine and include instruction on water safety, rowing, knot tying, nautical rules and terms and sailboat rigging. Occasional field trips and inter-club racing activities add variety and excitement to the program. AYC has a highly trained staff of U.S. Sailing Certified Instructors. The staff is sensitive to each child's needs and promotes respect for the water and love for sailing. Class size is limited to 14 students who are coached and supervised by a minimum of three instructors, assuring both safety and fun.
