Encinal Yacht Club

Established in 1890, Encinal Yacht Club is one of the oldest sailing clubs in the Bay Area, and has long offered and supported an active and successful Junior Sailing program for Bay Area youth – both EYC members and non-members alike. The mission of the EYC Junior Sailing Program is to instill a lifelong love and respect for the sport of sailing, while providing the fundamental skills necessary for participants to advance as far as they desire. The program will provide a current and effective curriculum, developing skilled and self-reliant sailors who will respect others, care for their equipment and the marine environment and will help fellow sailors on and off the water. The program will focus on seamanship, sportsmanship, and sailing skills from learn-to-sail fundamentals to competitive racing. Through the sport of sailing, the Junior Sailing Program strives to build confidence through sailing achievement, instill respect for safety and rules, develop self-discipline and responsibility, encourage teamwork and camaraderie, promote coastal and marine environmental awareness,and awaken interest in other maritime activities.
