Junior Sailing Program: The Junior Sailing Program at CYCoP continues to grow and expand sailing opportunities for the youth of CYC and the Philadelphia area with our sailing camp.  CYCoP invites children, ages 8 through 17, to come and discover the joy of sailing. Our objective is to provide a thorough sailing and boating education both on and off the water to a broad age range of participants. 
 
Sailing Camp, (C1-8): Eight week-long sessions run from Monday, June 15th through Friday, July 17th from 9:00 AM-4:00 PM each day, with lunch included. 
 
Race Camp, (R1&2):We also have a 2 week ADVANCED course for young sailors looking to sharpen their racing skills, starting Monday, July 20th and ending Friday, July 31st, from 9:00 AM-4:00 PM each day, with lunch included. The ADVANCED sessions are designed to introduce and refine racing concepts and skills in 420s and Opti’s for returning junior sailors and campers with sailing experience.

Flying Scot
The Flying Scot offers a fantastic introduction to sailing with a staff member on board.  Our Flying Scots have been especially rigged for ease of use and have a variable sail plan to allow for 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 handle.  They are excellent boats for some of the campers’ favorite activities like "fire drills" and "alligator fishing" that teach boat handling and safety skills within a game format.

C420
Our C420 sailboats are a stable boat chosen by many junior programs and they offer an ideal transition to a performance boat.  They react more quickly than our Flying Scots and can be sailed easily by two or three junior sailors.  While a simple and forgiving boat to operate, they offer our campers a more active and challenging sail.  C420s are raced in junior programs and are the boat we use in our junior and scholastic programs.  Learn more here:

OPTIMIST/OPTI
Our club rigged “Opti’s” 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” offers immediate feedback on your sailing technique and is great for honing single-handed sailing skills for junior sailors.
“Opti’s” are found all over the world, learn more here:
