2020 Junior Open Sailing

Four sessions of Junior Open Sailing, June 15, June 29, July 6, July 13 from 1 pm – 5 pm. $100 a week. These sessions are for sailors who have sailed with Asheville Youth Sailing before. We’re happy to host weekly sessions of supervised sailing. Get out on the water, enjoy the sunshine, we’ll play (safe) games, do drills, race a little, and just sail around. Ages 10 -18 only.

Once you click HERE to register, you will be taken to Clubspot, our membership site. If you sailed with us last year, you will already have a login. Once there, choose your sessions and which boat you’d like to sail. We’ll collect your payment and your waivers. (Be sure to check your email after registration to click the waiver!)

Basically, you are chartering a boat to use by the week. You will use the same boat and equipment each day.

Because of the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, we are accepting deposits of $25 per weekly registration to reserve a place in your preferred week(s). The deposit will be collected online at the time of registration. A statement for the remaining balance will be sent prior to the start of camp. This balance will be due on the Monday of your week’s first session. In the event of a resurgence of COVID-19 which causes us to cancel your session, or a documented or suspected case of COVID-19 in your household, all registration fees (minus the credit card charges) will be completely refunded.

COVID -19 Disclaimer: US Sailing, Asheville Youth Sailing, and The Asheville Sailing Club recommend singlehanded sailing or family sailing during this pandemic. The safety and health of each member is the responsibility of the individual member. Any members using club boats shall clean and sanitize the boat prior to and after each use according to directions with supplies provided. The safety of our members and instructors are the driving force for the modifications to this summer’s events. Our other option was to simply cancel junior sailing. Sailing is a great way to get back together as a club and enjoy being on the water. We will monitor the situation daily and make appropriate changes as needed. Please note there will be no onsite registrations. Please make sure you register online with your correct email address, and phone numbers since notifications may be made as late as the day of the event. Parents need to be “on call” while their sailor is on the lake in case of inclement weather — including too much or too little wind, rain, and thunderstorms. We have no safe place to gather with access to the clubhouse limited to three people at a time.

2020 Summer Learn-to-Sail

Two sessions of Learn-to-Sail, July 20 & July 27 from 1 pm – 5 pm. These sessions are for sailors who are complete beginners to intermediate sailors. Ages 7 – 18 only. $285 per session. $50 deposit to hold your spot.

2020 Junior Race Week

2020 Junior Race Week will happen at the end of summer, the week of August 24 – 28, after school. A guest coach will be on-board to beef up our racing skills and us get ready for middle and high school South Atlantic Yacht Racing Association junior series.

Reserve your place now with a $50 deposit! Final cost will be determined once we identify a clinician and know how many participants we have.

NOTE: You need approval from the Sailing Program Director or Coach to participate.
