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.
