Youth Sailing Program
Youth Sailing Program

In 1993, the Cape Fear Yacht Club (CFYC) established a premier Youth Sailing Program.

In collaboration and partnership with the Oak Island Parks and Recreation, the CFYC hosts the annual Summer Youth Sailing Camps.

Celebrating its 28th year, the Sailing Camp is the only on the water program in Brunswick County. In addition to having fun, the focus of this one-week course is learning the fundamentals of sailing, boating safety, proper sailing terminology, rigging, and how to skipper boats around Dutchmans Creak inlet and the Cape Fear River.

The Youth Sailing Camp Program consists of three individual weeks of single sailor Opti class sailboats and three individual weeks of the two sailor 420 class vessels. The 420s are often used in collegiate sailing programs across the country.

Sponsorship and fundraisers are integral to the success of the Youth Sailing Camp. The CFYC hosts an annual golf tournament fundraiser to support maintenance of the sailing fleet, compensate instructors, and provide additional amenities for sailors. All proceeds have a direct impact on cost reduction to young sailors across the community--who without the generous contributions of partners and sponsors would not be able to participate in the Sailing Camps.
