May 23, 2017

The Vallarta Yacht Club's Summer Sailing Camps offer sailing lessons at all levels - from beginners to advanced sailors - to all children, teens and young adults living in the greater Banderas Bay region.

Nuevo Vallarta, Nayarit - Know a child, teen or young adult who would like to learn to sail? Vallarta Yacht Club's sailing summer camps are back, and are bigger than ever this year. Students can now choose to learn Optimist dinghy, Laser dinghy or sailboard. Classes are offered for all levels, from beginner to advanced sailors.

Students will be safely guided to sailing competency by our experienced and internationally trained instructors. All classes will be held in Spanish and English. Students should bring their own life vest, but all other equipment will be provided as well as hydration and a nutritious lunch every day in the air-conditioned Clubhouse dining area.

Our camps will be held over three weeks, beginning June 26.

Every year we see our youth sailing group growing. Our summer camps are open to all ages 7-21 years old and are great introductory courses to get a good taste of what sailing is all about. Once summer is gone, training continues with the regular weekly lessons. All beginners can take the first week instruction camp and carry on with the intermediate/advanced third week course.

The one week Summer Camp fee is $2,950 pesos for non VYC members, and includes: One boat per student, Monday-Friday from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm; Lunch and Hydration. Please join us; limited spaces available.

The Vallarta Yacht Club Jr. Sailing Program provides Fun and Safe Sailing lessons for youth throughout Bahía de Banderas. Students are provided with individual sailing vessels, including Optimists, Lasers, and windsurfing boards, as well as keel boats. They are taught water and equipment safety and sportsmanship. As they grow and start racing, through this program are eligible to participate in competitive regattas with youths from all over Mexico and the International sailing community. Along the way, students gain self-confidence and pride in their accomplishments, while learning decision making and team work skill, 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.
