High School Program
The Encinal Yacht Club High School Sailing Program is for sailors in grades 8-12 wanting to sharpen their sailing skills throughout the fall, winter, and spring. Participants in the program attend regular practices at EYC and several weekend regattas around the Bay Area and Southern California. The regatta's are run by the Pacific Interscholastic Sailing Association (PCISA). The PICSA Regatta Schedule is here.
Our high school program is broken up into JV and Varsity practice squads depending on age and ability. Varsity sailors practice on Sundays and travel to both local NorCal and confrence wide PCISA regattas. JV sailors practice on Saturdays and with coach approval can also participate in local NorCal events. Most sailors start in JV and move to Varsity as their skills improve. All comers are welcome, but high school sailing is not a learn to sail program.
Currently in our 13th year of High School Sailing, Encinal has had 29 sailors move on to College Sailing in schools around the country. Of those 29, 10 are currently active, 19 have graduated, and 12 have been captain of their teams!
