Summer Sailing

Summer Sailing 2018

Teach your child the fun sport of sailing

There are many things your child can do during the summer months. Sailing is a sport that is not only fun, but provides your child with many lifelong skills that helps their holistic development.

At Malta Young Sailors Club, for nearly 30 years we have focused on teaching sailing to children. This gives us unparalleled experience in ensuring your child has the best level of teaching in a fun and safe environment.

Malta Young Sailors offers a variety of summer sailing programs for children of different skill levels. Whether a beginner or advanced sailor, summer sailing is not just for keeping them occupied. Summer sailing will fuel your child's interest in sailing.

The benefits of sailing

Making the decision to enroll your child in our summer sailing program at MYSC can be great for both their physical and mental well-being. A few of the many benefits of sailing are:

  • responsibility and respect for the environment;
  • water safety: how to avoid collisions
  • character education: sailing requires perseverance and following rules;
  • learn teamwork;
  • self-esteem and confidence by piloting their own craft;
  • spatial awareness;
  • physical coordination;
  • important habits: children learn how to keep their boat tidy, how to properly rig and unrig a boat, how to put things away in the right place;
