2010 Calendar


YOUTH SAILING

Looking for a new way to entertain your kids this year? Look no further than the Bay Area’s dozens of junior sailing programs. Many offer scholarships, and with rare exception, you don’t need to have your own boat. Unless noted below, club membership is not necessary. High school sailing for students in grades 9-12 takes place around Northern California in the Pacific Coast Interscholastic Sailing Association. If your high school doesn’t have a team – or enough students to field a team – don’t fret. Most programs allow students from several schools to form a single team.
