The Ithaca Yacht Club is committed to providing an excellent youth sailing program. Our program is open to members of Ithaca YC, as well as non-members. This often helps to facilitate friends attending camp and class together!
Help build the Youth Sailing Program by donating now to purchase new racing sails for our fleet of Opti's and 420's. Sails are a sailboat's engine, and the best shaped sail is the fasted engine. Our Youth Sailing Director, Sue Vandermeer has set a goal of raising $10,000 for really great sails for the IYC sailing team. Please support our youth as they grow to learn the self-reliance and independence that being alone in a sailboat teaches so well.
