Port Sailing has offered our Junior Sailing Camp for over 8 years. 

We now offer this great program in both our Port Washington and New Rochelle locations. 

Our Junior Sailing Instructors have an average of eight years teaching sailing & are certified by US Sailing or the American Sailing Association. Each instructor adheres to our curriculum to ensure a consistent learning experience.
