Our Sailing program here in Buffalo grew out of the initiative to share the sport of sailing with the WNY community. We offer lessons to our community because we believe that sailing builds character and resolve. The Buffalo waterfront provides the perfect playground for kids and adults to enjoy sailing. The purpose of the program is to encourage young people to have a lifelong involvement in sailing and the sailing community by promoting seamanship, sportsmanship and small boat handling skills from Learn to Sail fundamentals through Competitive Racing opportunities. Offering a safe, educational and engaging sailing program. Providing an enjoyable experience that promotes camaraderie, strong friendships and an enduring interest in sailing. And actively involving youth in the sailing traditions of the Buffalo Yacht Club.


Our high school sailing program is offered to students from all high schools during the school year. Practices are Monday - Friday 3:30 - 7. Private lessons are available to be scheduled on evenings and weekends all summer, fall, and spring.
