Rockstars | Ages ~5 - 7 | Fridays | 3:45pm - 6:00pm and/or Sundays | 12pm - 4pm
  • This is where the fun begins if your child starts early. These are our littlest sailors ages 5-7. Coaches sail in boats with 2-4 students. Best for getting little ones comfortable in boats, making new friends and learning basic terms and concepts. "Pirate Days" are the best!!
Beginning Sabots | Ages ~7 - 12 | Wednesdays & Fridays | 3:45pm - 6:00pm | AND/OR Sundays 12:00pm - 4:00pm
  • This is where you start if you are 7-12 years old with little to no sailing experience, but are comfortable in and around the water. Kids sail solo in Sabots aided by instructors in coach boats. It's not uncommon that kids repeat this class for a year or two depending on how young they  are to start.
Beg/Intermediate Laser Sailing | Ages ~12 - 17 |  Wednesdays & Fridays | 3:45pm - 6 :00pm 
  • Great for maturing tweens and teens, age 12-17 (100+ pounds), with anywhere from limited sailing experience to developing racing skills. Teens can pick up the more advanced concepts of sailing quickly and catch up to peers with prior sailing's never too late! Great for kids who discover sailing through their high school teams, but want to learn more about skippering. Watch out for monthly Screaming Chicken Regattas right here at MBYC for those getting into racing!
  •  Limited number of charter Lasers available - $50 extra per month (having your own boat is recommended).
Beginning Sabot Racing | Tuesdays & Thursdays | 3:45pm - 6:00pm | AND/OR Sundays 12:00pm - 4:00pm
  • This is the next step for sailors who have become comfortable in Beginning Sabots and are interested in learning more about racing. After this you're ready for our MBYC Race Team! Along with weekly practices, we'll have weekend club races or "regattas" called the Screaming Chickens, a fun way to experience racing for the first time right at home. We'll also have occasional "Clini-Chickens" which are full days with a clinic to start, a lunch break, then a Screaming Chicken!
