Hey Kids, Learn to Sail on Great Pond!
The Great Pond Yacht Club, in partnership with SailMaine, launched a youth sailing program on Great Pond during the summer of 2014. It was a huge success that first year and has continued to grow each year since. In 2017, to accommodate more youth, the program was expanded from 4 week-long sessions to 6 week-long sesssions.
The program is open to all youth ages 9 to 17 — their families are not required to be members of GPYC.
Morning and afternoon classes are available in one-week-long sessions in July and August. Morning sessions are for 9–12 year olds. Afternoon sessions are for 12–17 year olds. Tuition is very affordable, and scholarships are available so everyone can participate.
