This year we will once again be offering four 2-week sessions for non racers. Sessions for race classes will still be 4 weeks each. We will also offer discounts for selecting more than one session.

Be sure to familiarize yourself with the class descriptions, which are here. Contact us if you have any questions about class placement before you begin the registration process.

Students are grouped by ability, age and size, and Instructor recommendation. Placement decisions are guided by safety considerations and the skills demonstrated by the student. As a result, we will be unable to honor requests for “friends” to be placed together, or to have a student placed in an inappropriate class to accommodate a family’s schedule. We recognize that students mature and progress at different rates, and some movement from class to class may occur during a session.

More information, including what to bring to class, can be found in our handbook.

Registration Process, Step-by-Step Guide:

You will need: credit card information (or e-check information: your checking account# and your bank’s routing#), Medical Insurer, Policy#, student’s health information, emergency contact information and more… be sure to have that information handy.

  • In the left column select “Filter By Class Type” (either 420 or Opti) and then the particular class (for example Opti Beginner).
  • Select each session for that student’s class by clicking the “Add to Cart” button. If there is another student, go through the same procedure. Be sure to select each session desired for each student.
  • Once you have selected all classes, click the “Continue” button in the right hand column. On the next page enter your email address and click “Next”.
  • You will then see “Who is attending?” and be asked to give the student’s name, date of birth, and gender for each class. If you are registering more than one student, you will have the option to “Register a new student”, and provide information for that student.
  • Next you will be asked to provide additional information for each student, including medical information. You’ll see that most fields are already pre-filled, so if any of that info doesn’t apply to this next student, simply delete the data and enter new data.
  • Once the students information is entered you will need to provide Parent/Guardian information, Insurance information, Doctor’s information and Emergency Contact information for the student.
  • You must then read the Waivers and accept & sign it.
  • Next is the “Cart” page where you can review/edit your registration(s). Notice that there is a small processing fee included.
  • Scholarship Information: If you are the recipient of a scholarship, enter your Scholarship Code in the “Coupon code” field.
  • Make a payment with a credit card or eCheck. You can pay the whole amount now, or just pay a deposit. If you elect to pay a deposit, your credit card or eCheck will be automatically billed on the due date for the balance. The due date is the first day of classes. If you have a balance and wish to pay in person with a paper check or cash, we’ll enter the payment into the system to credit your account. You can also make a payment on your account by logging into the system and paying with a credit card online. If you have an outstanding balance your credit card will be billed for the full amount owed prior to the start of the first class for the session you select.
  • Next you will be asked to create an account with an email and password. In the future you can login to your account with this login information.
  • Once you place the order, a confirmation page will appear, and you will also receive an email confirmation.


In order to become enrolled in our Junior Sailing Program, juniors are required to become members of the Sandy Bay Yacht Club. Membership offers a variety of social activities, including beach cookouts, movie nights, and more. Junior members will also have access to boats outside of class time, once certified by the instructors. This membership fee ($97.00 each in 2021) is in addition to the tuition charges for lessons, and is paid to the Yacht Club. You will be billed by the Yacht Club separately for your membership, as this is not included in the online registration process. Membership dues are to be paid prior to your first class.


Limited financial aid is available. Requests for scholarships will be considered in the order they are received, and must be postmarked by the deadline (see Scholarship page). We do not grant 100% scholarships… you still need to pay membership dues to Sandy Bay Yacht Club, as well as partial tuition. Scholarship Page.

After You Register:

You can log back into your account to make additional payments towards your balance or to view your statement and other registration information.

You will receive occasional emails about the Sailing Program as well as junior social activities.

We also have an online calendar of various junior activities.

Class Changes:

Occasionally people register for the wrong class. If we notice this, you will be notified by the Program Director and we’ll take steps to correct the situation.


There will be no refunds for classes unless there is a medical condition that makes it so a student cannot participate in sailing. A doctor’s note will be required. There will however be a non-refundable deposit of $20.00 for each class.
