Information for Summer Sailing 2020

Hello Sailors & Parents!

Thank you for registering for Charleston Community Sailing’s summer programs. Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, we are constantly evaluating options for our Summer Programs, scheduled to begin in June. We understand our programs provide great experiences and memories for our participants, and much needed child-care for their families. Ultimately, our decisions to operate, delay, modify or cancel programs will be based on guidance from the CDC and other government health officials, as well as our commitment to ensuring we can provide a high quality, safe experience for your children. Please read our COVID-19 Letter to Parents.

This summer Charleston Community Sailing will continue to partner with the Charleston Yacht Club. All classes are instructed by a professional staff that hold US Sailing Level I Certification, CPR & First Aid Certified, to insure a fun, educational and safe experience.

What To Bring:

  • Face Covering (mask, buff)
  • Wear your swimsuit under light, breathable clothing – you can expect to get wet daily.
