Items up for auction include: exciting adventures, apparel, sportswear and accessories, art, tote bags, electronics, food, things for the outdoors, garden, home and kitchen, sailing outings and services.
Even a global pandemic was not enough to capsize the unsinkable spirit of the Junior Sail program this summer. The program carried on and got kids on the water with safety measures fully in place.
Help Us Continue Our Great Success
“We were one of the few organizations that spent the time and energy to make sure we could open our camp this summer,” the board of directors said in their emailed announcement. “This meant a lot of work by our board, sail director and staff to ensure we could open safely.
“We moved the site of our youth programs, changed to all single-handed boats and established strict health protocols. The result was no COVID cases and over 140 kids on the water. It did take a financial toll but our goal is to get kids on the water. Now we need your help.”

Remember, it’s “For the Kids.”
GHYC Junior Sail is a non-profit organization created to promote youth sailing through award-winning summer Sail Camp for kids and teens, and middle and high school Race Team.
Our goal is to provide access to sailing to girls and boys, ages 6 to 18, with no sailing experience up to racing-level sailors.
We build self-esteem, teamwork and a respect for the environment. We run programs in instruction, competitive racing and community outreach.
