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 9:15 to 11:30, with Guppies A on Monday and Wednesday Guppy Members have the option to avail themselves to special two-week Guppy sessions. There are four such two-week Guppy sessions, #1 from June 28 to July 9; #2 from July 12 to July 23, #3 from July 26 to August 6, and #4 from August 9 to August 20. Guppy Members can register their Guppies for one or more Guppy Sessions by emailing Chris at ck@oldcoveyc.com. The cost for each two-week Guppy Session is $325.

IMPORTANT: do not drop off your child before classes begin at 9:15 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.
