Youth Sailing

Sail All Season!

CBC sailing lessons allow your child to learn an exciting new sport, advance his/her skill level, meet new kids, or just experience the fun and learning opportunities that only sailing has to offer — all season long!

Non-sailors may ask, “why sailing?” when Providence already has organizations that offer a variety of youth sports and recreational programs. There are few (if any) activities that teach so many important virtues and lessons about life the way sailing does: cause and effect, problem-solving, science and technology, teamwork, and much more.

Choose the Session(s) Right for Your Child

Although membership to CBC is required to take lessons, our multiple sessions make it easy to create a custom, progressive learning schedule, or mesh with your summer vacation plans. Youth lessons are offered in four (4) Summer Camp sessions and four (4) After-School sessions. CBC’s flexible and affordable format allows you to start building your child’s lesson plan today — for a season to remember.
