The Basics

The Junior program focuses on youth ages 10 – 16.  One instructor likens it to attending summer day camp, but with your schoolmates. By taking advantage of the town’s seaside location, one can become an accomplished sailor within a few years. For those new to town, it is a great way to make friends before school starts in the fall. To enroll, students must have completed the 4th grade.

Beginning students start with seamanship basics, and progressively acquire more advanced sailing skills. The mandatory equipment needed include a US Coast Guard approved type III life jacket and closed toed shoes.  Sunscreen and a smile are also recommended.

The Junior program has a four-year structure with an additional 5th and 6th year Race Team participation for those with advanced skills.




  • First-year students start at the Sailor level (after completion of 4th grade or older)


  • Second year students are in the Mate level


  • Third year students are in the Skipper level


  • Fourth year students are in the Captain level 


  • After the successful completion of the 4 year program a fifth year student may join the Race team and may join again as a 6th year student of they so wish.




Making Up Missed Classes
We understand that summers are a busy time of year and your child will more than likely miss some sailing this summer.  It is only necessary to contact us if your child is going to miss more than 1/3 of their classes.  If you would like to arrange for private lessons (for an additional cost) for your child to get caught up please see our Program Director.  Due to high enrollment it is not possible for students to attend a different class time to make up missed days.

Your Program Director and Instructors

We welcome Maryellen Holler, as our new Program Director.  
Your instructors are college and high school students, many of whom went through the CSC’s Junior Program and Racing team. Our Senior Instructors are all U.S. Sailing Level I Certified Instructors, a designation granted to those who complete an intense week-long training program and who successfully test out, thus meeting rigorous U.S. Sailing Association national standards AND the Massachusetts Environmental Police Boating Safety Course.  Other instructors are all experienced sailors, many of whom will become senior instructors in future seasons. We complete our staffing with Instructors In Training (IITs) who assist in all facets of the program.
