Two-Week Junior Sailing Program

Our two-week sailing program is for students ages 9 to 17. Member and returning sailor registration (priority consideration and fees) is offered to MRSA and Grachur members’ children, grandchildren, (grand) nieces/nephews, and cousins. Member registration opens on February 1st, 2024. Non-member registration opens on March 1st, 2024. No prior sailing experience is required for participation. Students are expected to be able to swim before the start of the program.

MRSA maintains a fleet of dinghies, including FJs, 420s, Lasers, and Prams. On the water training will be conducted on these boats with students separated into groups by sailing experience. Our staff of instructors and counselors teaches a US Sailing/CBYRA-approved training program in training. They are assisted by volunteers from each student’s family who provide onshore supervision each day.

Volunteer Involvement
Our Junior Training Program requires family support to assist in the smooth sailing of the program. Volunteers clean and rig boats before the start of the program. A volunteer must also provide one day of on-site supervision per sailor in the program.

Program Registration
Registration applications will be accepted starting February 1st. Members of MRSA and Grachur Club have priority registration until March 1st. Returning member students will have priority over new member students. Non-member registration will be considered after member registrations, with priority given to returning students through March 1st. starting March 2nd, all applications will be enrolled in order of date received provided the program is not full.

Priority students accepted to the program will be notified on or about March 1st. Another acceptance notification will be sent out on April 1st. Once the program is full, a waiting list will be formed with the remaining registrations. Member Priority will be retained if the registrant is placed on the waiting list. Applications received on or after March 2nd will be added in the order they are received without priority stipulations. Space in the program is limited to 40 students. Registration priority will be determined by the date of receipt of the submitted registration forms.
