Summer 2021 Youth Sailing Programs
Registration is NOW OPEN!
Youth Learn to Sail Program
Registration is now open for our Youth Learn to Sail program. Located at the Historic Coast Guard Station off Wendy Park in Cleveland, Ohio, the Foundry Sailing Center is the perfect location to start your sailing adventure! We welcome students in grades 7th - 12th grade to come aboard to experience and learn to sport of sailing. Our dedicated US Sailing certified staff promotes the US Sailing Instructor’s responsibility for safety, fun, and learning.
This program is designed for beginner and intermediate students who are eager to learn to sail and experience the basics of sailing for the first time or are continuing their skill development. With both classroom and on-the-water instruction, students learn about safety, boat parts, rigging, knots, sailing terminology, and points of sail. On-the-water instruction focuses on boat handling, such as tacking and gybing, steering and sail trim, launching and docking boats, and capsize recovery.
Students have the option to sail however many weeks they want, 1 through 8, and can also mix and match weeks throughout the summer. Though we recommend consecutive weeks for skill retention, they are not required.
This summer we will be offering half and full day options, Monday through Friday; mornings, afternoons or both. Those interested in full day options receive a 10% discount at checkout.
Our Covid-19 protocols require all sailors to wear a mask/face covering while onshore and on the docks. Temperatures will also be taken upon entry into the boat house and classroom space will be socially distanced. Hand sanitizer is also available to those who do not bring their own.
Each week, registrants will receive an email with what to expect, what to bring and drop off/pick up instruction.
Registration is limited and on a first come, first serve basis.

10% discount if registering for the full day per week.
