Junior Sailing Program
The Corinthian Yacht Club of Philadelphia invites all children (ages 8 through 17), to come and discover the joy of sailing. The objective of the program is to provide more sailing and boating education both on and off the water to a broad age range of participants.  Five weekly sessions run from June 10th through July 12th from 9:00 AM-4:00 PM each day and Lunch is included.  We also have a 2 week advanced course for young sailors looking to sharpen their racing skills, starting July 15th and 22nd.

The Junior Sailing Program at CYCoP continues to grow and expand in our recognition of the youth of CYC and the Philadelphia area. The objective of the program is to provide more sailing and boating education both on and off the water.
 
The ADVANCED sessions are designed to introduce and refine racing concepts and skills in 420s and Optis for returning junior sailors and campers with sailing experience.

 Flying Scot
The Community Flying Scots at Corinthian are a fantastic platform for sailing introduction with a staff member on board.  Our Flying Scots have been specially rigged for ease of use and have a variable sailplan to allow comfortable sailing in a wide range of conditions.  Campers have fun learning the positions on the 19 foot boat at a speed that is easy to comprehend.  The Flying Scots are excellent boats for some of the campers favorite activities like "fire drills" and "alligator fishing" that teach boat handling and safety skills inside a game format.

C420
Our C420 sailboats are an initially stable boat chosen by many junior programs and an ideal transition to a performance boat.  They are more active for sailors looking for a more challenging but still simple and forgiving.  They react more quickly than our Flying Scots and can be sailed easily by two and three junior sailors. C420s are actively raced in junior programs and are the boat we use in our junior and scholastic programs

OPTIMIST
Our club rigged Optis are used to offer our intermediate sailors a chance to operate a fast responding sailboat and sail either single or double handed.  The quick response of the Opti  is a great way to get feedback for your sailing skills and learn single handed skills for junior sailors.
Optis are found all over the world
