OK… let’s cut right to the chase. You’re a busy parent and you’re crazy enough to add one more thing to your plate. That’s right, your plate, sailing is a commitment for both you and your junior. You need to be involved for them to succeed at the racing level. Don’t take this to mean you should buy a coach boat and follow them around all day, but you need to step in and get to know the program your child is sailing in and ask how you can help. Sailing is the greatest lifelong adventure your kids will ever know… congrats for opening up this world to them.
To start please review our junior programs list to find the organizations in your area offering opportunities for junior sailing and are members of the ECSA (Eastern Connecticut Sailing Association)
