USA Junior Olympic Sailing Festivals Nationwide


Summer is the busiest time of year for most junior sailing programs across the country and this is certainly the case for the host clubs of the seven USA Junior Olympic Sailing Festivals taking place in August. More than 1,000 young sailors are expected to get on the water and have fun sailing while enjoying educational clinics and good racing during a Junior Olympic Sailing event. The only program of its kind in the country, the USA Junior Olympic Sailing Festival program, organized by US SAILING and presented by West Marine, consists of a series of 24 USA Junior Olympic Sailing Festivals that are taking place at sailing organizations nationwide throughout the year. The program is also sponsored by Gill.
