Sailing and Water Sports Camp

James Island Yacht Club has the fastest growing junior sailing and watersports program in the area. It is also the most affordable and open to members and non-members.   We have grown to teaching over 100 kids per summer.  Our instructors are also amongst the best available.  Lessons are on a weekly basis.  We sail, fish, crab, kayak, and anything else we can think of that involves the water.   Ages are from 7 and up.   Camp runs from June and into August.  Sign up soon as slots fill up quickly.  Full day or half day sessions are available.

Sailing at JIYC

JIYC has some of the most active sailors in the Lowcountry and a very proactive sailing committee.  During the summer we host an open regatta, the Special Olympics Regatta, and each Thursday evening we host a small boat regatta open to the public.  We also host various sailing events throughout the year.  With our small beach we are the perfect small boat club for Sunfish, Lasers, Moths, Hobies, etc.  Our new dock facilities give us the ability to also use larger boats.  Two ramps and a hoist make it the perfect place to launch from as well.
