YOUTH BIG BOAT PROGRAM MENTOR APPLICATION

Sail Newport is teaming up with Ida Lewis Yacht Club to provide a new program which will expand young sailors' access to big boat sailing programs.  The program will be taught by a mix of our coaches, selected mentors and pro sailors with a wealth of varied sailing experience.  

It is our goal that students will learn both competitive and non-competitive sailing skills and lessons. Using high-performance keelboats, coastal, and offshore cruising boats, students will grow their sailing skills and knowledge base.
