Sailing Camp & Lessons

Fort Walton Yacht Club has partnered with the Emerald Coast Sailing Association to offer the best Summer Camp in Okaloosa County for kids aged 7-18 years old. They offer beginner I & II Summer Camps and have been serving the community since 1992 to help promote the sport of sailing.

If your child has only is new to sailing or only had 1 camp the previous year, it is recommended to do the beginner 1 course. Either way, the sailing instructors will divide the class by the age/weight and then look at beginner 1 vs. 2 applicants. They are focused on having fun and building confidence in sailing, being on the water, decision making, learning and respecting each other. 
If your child has completed Beginner 2 and wants to try something new, then it is recommended the “Learn to Race” camp. This course is designed to teach the basics of sailboat racing.
