Jr Sailing 101: The 2010 schedule for the Texas Sailing Association Youth Circuit

Ever get those February blahs?  Well you won't have to any longer.  Start racing again on February 13 and 14 with the Texas Youth Sailing Association.  The Association has a wide variety of races planned between February and October. 

Sailing is a great sport for children and you often see sailors as young as five or six beginning to race.  This is a sport many will continue in high school and in college. 

Please feel free to contact me if you want to know more about junior sailing.  I can assist you in getting in touch with a junior sailing program that is near you and meets your needs.

Most of these regattas feature optis, lasers and 420 sailboats.
