Please register today, as we have limited spaces available. Every year we see our sailor group growing. Our summer camps are great introductory courses to get a good taste of what sailing is all about. Once summer is gone, training continues with the regular sailing lessons.
The Vallarta Yacht Club Jr. Sailing Program provides Fun and Safe Sailing lessons for children throughout Bahia de Banderas. Children are provided with individual sailing vessels, including Optimists and Lasers, and keel boats, and taught water and equipment safety and sportsmanship.
As they grow and start racing, through this program are eligible to participate in competitive regattas with youth from all over Mexico and the International sailing community. Along the way, children gain self-confidence and pride in their accomplishments, while learning decision making and team work skills, as well as developing character, knowledge of and love for the sea.Located in the Paradise Village Marina at Paseo de los Cocoteros No. 001, Interior 20 in Nuevo Vallarta, the Vallarta Yacht Club is a non-profit membership organization known for its contributions to yachting within the Banderas Bay region.
