BYC Junior Sailing Program

Our Sailing program here in Buffalo grew out of the initiative to share the sport of sailing with the WNY community.  We offer lessons to our community because we believe that sailing builds character and resolve.  The Buffalo waterfront provides the perfect playground for kids and adults to enjoy sailing.  Next summer take advantage of this awesome opportunity and plan to enroll your kids in the Buffalo Yacht Club sailing camp.  Conveniently located just of the 190 at exit 9 next to the peace bridge.

  • Promoting seamanship, sportsmanship and small boat handling skills from Learn to Sail fundamentals through Competitive Racing opportunities.

  • Offering a safe, educational and engaging sailing program

  • Providing an enjoyable experience that promotes camaraderie, strong friendships and an enduring interest in sailing.

  • Actively involving youth in the sailing traditions of the Buffalo Yacht Club

The following is a list of items each junior sailor should bring to camp daily:
Swimsuit (to be worn under clothes)

In the event of inclement weather, camp will still take place. Coaches will give lessons inside and oversee sailing-related games.
