Sandy Point Sailing Association’s mission is to build fundamental sailing skills, to create competent sailors with a life-long passion for sailing through comprehensive instruction, to foster personal confidence, teamwork, leadership, community and respect for the sea in a fun and safe environment. Sandy Point has been an active organizer of junior sailing activities in Beverly, MA, since the middle of the last century.

Our experienced, US Sailing certified instructors are dedicated to preparing our future sailing community by offering a sequence of courses tailored to specific groups from beginners to racers for both the young and the young-at-heart. Students are given the opportunity to learn sailing and all facets of seamanship by: hoisting sails, tying knots, navigating, experiencing the wind, waves, tides & currents; and obeying the rules-of-the-road.

Classes Descriptions

Youth Beginner & Youth Beginner Advanced

Duration: 10 weekdays; 3 hours/day

Youth Beginner Sailing & Youth Beginner Advanced classes are designed for the young beginner, ages 8-11, to enjoy learning to sail in a non-racing environment.

These classes are the building blocks for advancement and each student will receive a skills assessment at the end of each session. Games and activities each session allow for sailors to repeat these sessions multiple times when needed or desired.

The classes covers all the basics including rigging, safety rules, and sailing maneuvers. As the students advance, they will add to their skills while also polishing the techniques learned in the prior weeks, including sail trim, boat handling, upwind sailing, and skills needed to sail in heavier winds. Students will be on the water every day — active, in the sun, and having fun.
