The 2024 Youth Sailing program fills up fast!

Our very popular Youth Sailing program returns  the LaHave River Yacht club for the 2024 season.
The LRYC, LTS program is based on fun
and teaching kids the fundamentals of sailing and sportsmanship.
We have the perfect setting along the beautiful LaHave River.
I am looking forward to a great program this year!

LRYC runs a small/fun/affordable Learn to Sail Program.
We teach participants following the CanSail guidelines.
If you want your sailor to have a registered CanSail level (if achieved), there will be an additional $20.00 charge.
This information will be put into CanSail’s Checkclick system so it can be accessed anytime in the future no matter where your sailor participates.
