Junior Sailing

The Ram Island Yacht Club Junior Sailing program provides the fundamental skills necessary for young sailors to advance in the sport of sailing as far as their desire, skill, and interests may take them. The program fosters seamanship, safety and self-confidence on the water. Advanced skills are taught for all juniors who are interested in either casual or competitive racing.

Please contact Ann Bergendahl 860-460-3909 or Rob Warn 860-287-2978 with any questions. 

Austin LaFrance Regatta, July 23, 2019

The Austin LaFrance Opti Regatta is open to all age eligible sailors with class legal Optis. We have a separate Green Fleet and start the Red, Blue & White Fleets together. Scoring is done overall and trophies are awarded to fleet leaders. We usually have over 70 sailors so we encourage carpooling and towing.  We use three minute dinghy starts and try to get in as many races as conditions permit.
