YSF with VBRC & St. Edward's - a great partnership!

Youth Sailing Foundation (YSF) partners with local venues to offer a Summer Sailing Camp that combines the sailing expertise of YSF with world class facilities. Located on the barrier island, the host sites offer the perfect venues for beginner sailors, with protected coves off the Indian River Lagoon, as well as comfortable indoor space for chalk talks, lunch, and games.

This summer's YSF Camp HQ will be at Vero Beach Rowing Club and at St. Edward's School.

With weekly enrollment limited to twenty-five, your child or grandchild will get closely supervised instruction in a safe and fun atmosphere.

Camp is one week, Monday through Friday from 9 AM to 3 PM, $300. Age limit is 8 through 13 yrs.

All participants must pass a swim test administered by YSF’s certified instructor on first day of camp.

Required Equipment for Camp:

Please write child’s name on all of the above items.

Life Jackets

It is required that ALL sailors AT ALL TIMES wear an adequate personal flotation device (PFD – proper name for life jacket). This life jacket (PFD) needs to be a brightly colored, Coast Guard approved, Type III or better with no collar that can get caught on the boat rigging. Type V inflatable life jackets should NOT be used in this course. PFDs are sold by the child’s weight. Be sure to purchase the proper size! A whistle should be attached with a line to the life jacket and the child’s name should be written on the life jacket.

West Marine, Wal-Mart or dive shops are all good sources for these.
