YOUTH SAILING

The Sint Maarten Yacht Club's Youth Sailing program offers 10 sessions of after school sailing and one on Saturday mornings. We currently have over 60 Youth Sailors on multiple levels.

 

Our mission is to give our youth the opportunity to learn and enjoy sailing and racing. Sailing nurtures and builds confidence, team skills, self-reliance, physical strength, quick thinking and a love for the environment.

 

We give our kids the opportunity to choose their own paths, be it cruising or more competitive racing.

THE FLEET

Currently, we have Optimists, Lasers, RS Visions and Laser Picos. We begin our youth (age 7) in the Optis and continue instructing them to a competative level to age 15.  

THE RS VISION

The RS Vision is the perfect all-round family sailboat.
It's easy to handle and a great training boat for lessons as well as for cruising and racing. After children age out of the Opti program, the next step for them is often a double-hander. This boat is ideal for the older youth who are new to sailing. 

OPEN HOUSE

On Saturday August 31st from 10AM till 4PM. we will have an open house for everyone. Bring your grands, your kids, your parents, your family and your friends and enjoy free try out lessons, rope work lessons, neutical flags, the alphabet and more. We will have a St. Maarten Heineken Regatta and a SMYC information booth for all your questions: from becoming a member or maybe you want to buy some merchandise. Let's celebrate the start of a new season together!

THE OPTI

The Opti, a worldwide competative boat, is ideal for youth to learn how to sail. Opti champions have gone on to become advanced sailors in all types of boats.  

THE LASER

The Laser is one of the most popular single-handed dinghies in the world.
Not meant for unqualified sailors due to the high level of skill needed to sail them, they are popular with the advanced children in the program and with members of the club.   

THE RS VISION

The RS Vision is the perfect all-round family sailboat.
It's easy to handle and a great training boat for lessons as well as for cruising and racing. After children age out of the Opti program, the next step for them is often a double-hander. This boat is ideal for the older youth who are new to sailing.
