Normandy Beach Yacht Club

Laser Sailing Welcome to Junior Sailing 2017! Our program begins on Monday, June 26th and continues for eight weeks, concluding on Thursday, August 17th.

Our Head Instructor, Kate Wagner, and the Jr. Sailing Coordinator met with a special junior sailing program consultant over the last few weeks, developing a more innovative curriculum that will provide incentives to sharpen sailing skills and promote competitive sportsmanship and lifelong friendships!

We are bringing back our Wednesday, Mid-Week Racing Series! All Intermediate and Advanced Junior sailors may participate in these full-day races. 10 AM to 3 PM. Lunch will be available for purchase at NBYC on those occasions. We have plans for some great Fun Days to break up the curriculum, as well!

We would like to open up the yacht club for a few Junior Nites! However, we need parents and kids to take the lead on these events. These do not have to be "sailing-oriented." Suggestions include an Open Grill Night or Pizza Party for the Jr. Sailors and their friends, or maybe a Crabbing Competition off the dock! *Our instructors are employed to coach the junior sailors during the day, so parent supervision will be needed for these evening events.

Kate Wagner is returning as Head Coach for a third summer and is extremely excited about the season! She grew up sailing at Mantoloking Yacht Club and has always had a passion for it. Kate looks forward to implementing more creative ways of coaching that will be fun as well as instructive. She is going to be a senior at The Pennsylvania State University in the fall, majoring in Sociology with a double minor in Labor and Employment Relations, as well as Rehabilitation and Human Services.

Cameron Cranley also returns to NBYC this season! As an alumnus of the junior sailing programs at NBYC and Manasquan River Yacht Club, she has become a creative and integral part of our coaching team. Cameron is currently attending Lafayette College, where she is majoring in Chemical Engineering and International Studies and rows competitively as a member of the Lafayette Crew Team!

Jack Miller, will be a new addition to our team of instructors. He, too, graduated from the Mantoloking Yacht Club Jr. Sailing Program, has sailed Opti's and Club 420's competitively and participated in the Duck Boat World Cup for the last 8 years! He is currently the Captain of the Varsity Wrestling Team at Westfield High School and will wrestle at the University of Virginia, majoring in business in the upcoming fall. Jack is not only very active in athletics, but teen and community volunteerism, as well. We look forward to having him on board!

All instructors have US Sailing, First Aid and Red Cross/AED Certification.

*A mandatory Parent/Sailor/Instructor Meeting will be held sometime before the start of Program. This will be an informative meeting where the instructors will further explain the new curriculum, race calendar, and regatta registration & protocol. Parents will also be informed as to how best communicate with the instructors through the use of the internet and cell phone app's.

*Private lessons are available with an individual instructor upon request.

*Club Opti's may be available for rental for the Intermediate/Advanced Clinics. However, we encourage the purchase of sailboats for sailors who have participated in the Jr. Sailing Program for more than 1 year. The Junior BBYRA 2017 schedule of regattas and interclubs can be found at www.bbyra.org. These events are an integral part of instruction for the Intermediate and Advanced students and provide an opportunity to competitively race against sailors of similar proficiency from other yacht clubs. Registration information for these events is usually posted on the Jr. Sailing Calendar at the BBYRA website. We also encourage our intermediate and advanced sailors to compete in the Saturday, BBYRA Race Series.

NBYC Sunday Afternoon Race Series is another opportunity for junior sailors to practice technique, teamwork and sportsmanship. Refreshments are served at an informal awards ceremony following the races. Bring your family and friends and join in the fun!

Here's to another wonderful summer of fair weather, gentle breezes and great sailing!
