Registration for the Spring of 2023 will open at the clubs' general meeting on January 12th at Galuppis. If you can't attend the meeting, you may send your completed & signed forms to: firstname.lastname@example.org any time after the meeting ends. Space is limited and will be awarded on a first come basis. The Youth Sailing Administrators will confirm your child enrollment. After February 9th, if there is still space, we will promote the youth sailing program to the general public.
The HISC youth sailing program is non-profit and completely volunteer operated. The instructors are club members, who have obtained their U.S Sailing Instructor Certification. Additionally, the club maintains two coach boats that volunteers use to assist the kids out on the water. HISC owns a fleet of 13 small sailboats: 5 Optimist Prams and 8 O'pen Skiffs. These boats are stored at Quiet Waters Park for use twice a year to train children aged 8 to 18 in the art of sailing.
Members may enroll any number of their children or grandchildren in youth sailing at no cost. However, space is limited and pre-registration is required. Registration will be announced at the HISC general meeting approximately 6-8 weeks before the session begins. An email blast will also be sent to club members. Enrollment is offered first to club members, and then if space is still available, to the general public.
Non-club members pay $75 per child, per session. Once a session begins, there are no refunds.
A Spring and a Fall session are planned each year. Each session consists of 4 Saturdays. The children will generally get 2-3 hours of time out on the water. This is a great opportunity for the kids to get acquainted with sailing in small boats. For more information, click on this link:
