Junior Sailing

Sponsored by Lake Keuka Sailing Foundation (LKSF)

The LKSF Junior Sailing Program is one of the oldest in the United States, founded in 1953 as the Keuka Yacht Club Junior Sailing Program. Today’s LKSF Jr. Sailing Program is approved by sailing and yacht racing's governing agency, U.S. Sailing, and all of our instructors are U.S. Sailing Level One Certified and CPR and First Aid certified. We believe that sailing should be educational, a source of personal satisfaction, and fun.

Each session runs Monday to Thursday (except for the week of July 5), from 9am to 4pm each day. Students are responsible for their own lunches.  Class sizes are limited to insure dedicated instruction in a safe and inclusive manner. Boats used are the Flying Junior Sloop (FJ), Laser and Sunfish.
