Welcome to the Southwestern Yacht Club Junior Program

Our mission is to instill a lifelong love of boating, whether it be fishing, racing, or cruising by making sure students are having fun and learning in a safe environment.  SWYC offers a wide variety of classes ranging from beginners to advanced, and young to old.  In our classes, we sail Naples Sabots, Open Bics, Lasers and Laser Radials, CFJs, Club 420s, and a J-24.  Classes are offered both year-round and as part of our Summer Sailing Program.


In order to curtail the spread of Covid-19 through participation in our programs, all children will be required to wear masks while on Club premises. This is a precondition of participation in our programs as established by the Board of Directors. Masks must be properly fitted and worn over the nose and mouth upon arrival. Children who arrive without a mask will be issued a SWYC mask and billed accordingly. Please note that buffs and gators are not considered a viable substitute for masks. Thank you for your cooperation with our safety protocols.

The SDAYC - JAC area clubs have built an awesome calendar that will take us all the way up to March 21st! These regattas will give tons of opportunities for Sabot racers looking to move up in fleets, beginning & experienced C420 racers, as well as beginning and experienced Laser racers all while not leaving the county! There are also three race days in there for our O'Pen Skiff enthusiasts, including O'Pen Skiff Midwinters West at MBYC. Please mark these dates and let me know which events you plan on attending. Links to register will be live soon!
