The Balboa Yacht Club provides a fantastic venue for high school sailing. Our High School Sailing program invites students from eighth grade to twelfth grade to participate. We welcome students of all ability levels, from no experience to advanced.
BYC hosts practices each week in the school year for Mater Dei High School. Teams travel to regattas up and down the West Coast throughout the year as members of the Pacific Coast Interscholastic Sailing Association, the governing body of the West Coast and Hawaii for high school sailing. Practices begin in mid-September and continue through mid-April. Mater Dei High School practices Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons. For more information on how to start a sailing program at your school, please contact Mater Dei head coach Nick Ventrilla at 716-696-0842 or email at email@example.com.
