Guppies

What is the Guppy Program?

The Guppy Program is a “pre-beginner” program designed to introduce younger children to formal sailing instruction. The program is designed for children ages 5 to 7 and will introduce them to sailing and on-the-water activities in a relaxed, fun and playful manner. The classes will also include a variety of on-shore activities. Guppies should be able to swim and be comfortable floating in their PFDs.

Please note that the minimum age of 5 years on day the program begins is strictly enforced and in fairness to all, no exceptions will be granted. As part of the Guppy Registration, you will be asked to provide a copy of either the child's birth certificate or the photo page of the passport. These can be uploaded as part of the registration or emailed separately to Junior sailing. No Guppy Registration will be processed until such supporting documents have been provided. If you have any questions about a Guppy registration, please email Junior sailing.

Guppies meet twice a week from 9:30 to 12:00, with Guppies A on Monday and Wednesday, and Guppies B on Tuesday and Thursday. Children may be enrolled in both Guppies A and Guppies B.

IMPORTANT: do not drop off your child before classes begin at 9:30 am. OCYC Junior Sailing staff is fully engaged with getting all the classes that start at 9:00 ready and cannot chaperone an early drop-off.
