The Biscayne Bay Yacht Club Youth Windsurfing Program began in fall of 2016. The program now serves more than 25 young sailors, ages 8 to 16 in beginner, recreational, and racing programs. Beginners attend on Sundays, while novice and advanced programs run one to four days a week. Weekday Race Nights, regattas, summer and holiday camps are also a part of the schedule.
The BBYC programs focuses on creating a fun learning environment on an off the water. In addition to teaching windsurfing, sailors learn traditional seamanship and to respect nature and the sea, while also learning to respect each other and themselves.
CONNECTING YOUNG PEOPLE
The Youth Windsurfing Program connects young people with the nature, the sea, and a broader multigeneraltional community with a passion for this unique lifetime sport. It connects them to their true selves, pushes their boundaries, and pushes them to do their best, which is more important than being the best.
