About Camp:

Ages 7 to 17, Monday to Friday, 9am to 4pm (no before or aftercare is provided).  All levels of experience are welcome!  We sail several types of boats, including Optimist Prams, Lasers, RS Zest, and RS Feva sailboats.  Sailors will be assigned to boats according to age and skill level. You will receive more information on what to bring to camp, drop off, and pick up procedures one week before your camp starts. 





  • Ability to swim:  swim tests will be given on the first day of your session
  • Coast Guard approved Personal Flotation Device (PFD) - a lifejacket
  • Closed water shoes (no flip flops)
  • We will have snacktime and lunchtime, but no food will be provided.  Please pack enough snacks, lunch, and water for the day!


About Us:

In 2021, Harbor Island Yacht Club will host our 32nd year of our Youth Sailing Program. Our Sail Camp program is intended for children and teens ages seven through 17.  It is structured to build sailing skills from beginners through advanced sailors. Our goal is to introduce children and teens to sailing, but also to racing, and to build advanced knowledge of small boat handling in a safe, fun environment. The program is taught by knowledgeable, trained young adults, and caring counselors all of whom are required to complete a full week of staff training and instructors have US Sailing Instructor certification.  HIYC Sail Camp is managed by the non-profit Nashville Sailing Foundation.
