High School Sailing Program
Welcome to the High School Sailing program at Mission Bay Yacht Club. MBYC is proud to be hosting La Jolla High School,Mission Bay High School, and Olympian High School. Each of these teams have made great improvements in the quality of sailing and demonstrated significant improvement. Heavy recruitment at middle schools is ensuring a highly qualified pool of sailors for the coming season, and beyond!
Our program investments include continuing to improve the quality of boats and storage, new coaching support, and investment in junior memberships for all high school sailors.
MBYC high school boat charter and coaching fees remain the same for the 2017/2018 season. Charter fees will be $425 per sailor for the year. This also covers any non-High School charter activities such as afterschool / D-H program charter costs. Junior memberships for all High School sailors are $50 per year initiation and $19.00 per month. Total monthly costs will be organized by the high school parent lead.
In an effort to keep our CFJ fleet in racing condition, we will be implementing a plan where each high school team will contribute two sessions of boat cleaning during the season. These sessions shall consist of a minimum of 10 sailors and a minimum of three hours. Parents are welcome to assist. The goal will be to wash and Teflon-seal the fleet. Each school will be assigned a two-month window, so that our hulls will be in great shape for competition throughout the season! Friday afternoons are a great day to schedule your work day so that no practices are sacrificed. Boat cleaning works in tandem with the boat check in and check out procedures, ensuring all boats are matched with tiller, tiller extension, sail, and lines.
Please let me know if you have any questions at all about High School sailing at Mission Bay Yacht Club. We’re looking forward to an excellent season and an exciting future in the development of sailing skills and life lessons for our young adults!
