Welcome to Ipswich Junior Sailing

Ipswich Junior Sailing offers sailing lessons to all youth ages 8 to 16. The program is located at Ipswich Bay Yacht Club and sails in Plum Island Sound. Ipswich Junior Sailing, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and welcomes all students of any race, color, religion, or national origin. Scholarships are also available based on need, among other criteria.

Ipswich Junior Sailing uses 15 Optimist dinghies and 8 Club 420 dinghies. These boats are the choice of sailing programs nationwide because they are sturdy for learning but provide enough challenge to keep competitive racers engaged. All sailors are grouped by age and abilities.  Our racing program offers experienced sailors an opportunity to participate in local and regional regattas, such as Marblehead Junior Race Week.

420s Will Coughlin/Will Downs and Ryan Carner/Rowan Henkes took the top two spots in a 14 boat 420 fleet today at our annual Greenhead Regatta. Other IJS boats had some notable finishes, including our two Opti sailors. Thank you for everyone that came out to participate, as well as everyone who made this amazing event happen.
