Sailing Academy
Junior Sailing Program

Welcome to the Westlake Yacht Club Junior Program! We offer a unique and exciting program for young people aged 9-18. No experience is necessary to participate and is open to the general public. We teach our juniors how to rig, sail and ultimately to race; encouraging participation in our monthly regattas throughout the year.

Our juniors learn how to sail on Sabots, Optis, Lasers, CFJ’s (Flying Juniors) and Catalina 14’s.

Westlake Lake is an excellent place to learn the basics of sailing because it is protected from shipping and other large boating traffic, while also not being at risk to strong winds and uncontrollable ocean currents. This lake is ideal to lay a foundation of basic sailing and racing skills that will last a lifetime.

For more information please contact the Rear Commodore via our Contact Form or by calling the Club at (818) 889-4820.
