DPYC Youth Sailing & Activities

Developing knowledgeable and capable youth sailors and instilling a passion for the sport of sailing!

Whether it be for pure fun or the excitement of competitive sailing, Dana Point Yacht Club provides the opportunity for youth to become involved in sailing at all levels ... from learning to sail to advanced racing.  We have an outstanding summer sailing program that is open to both members and to the public and are expanding our advanced programs
 including high school sailing, C420 racing, and more.

Working with the Dana Point Harbor Youth Foundation to maintain one of the largest fleets of foundation owned Lasers, Collegiate Flying Juniors, and 420s in Southern California,
our coaches are highly qualified sailors who emphasize fun and safety, both on and off the water.  Participants dedicated to our program will have experiences that will benefit them for a lifetime.  We invite you to come join us at DPYC!
