Youth Sailing Virginia (YSV) has achieved national recognition by the United States Sailing Association, as the 36th Accredited Community Sailing Center in the nation and the only accredited center on the east coast between Maryland and Florida. The accreditation recognizes YSV as one of the top sailing centers in the country in terms of safety and teaching standards, quality of staff and instruction professionalism and how we offer access and enjoyment of sailing to the public.
Youth Sailing Virginia is 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to making sailing available and affordable to the youth of the greater Hampton Roads area from our center at Fort Monroe. Our mission is to teach high school and middle school age youth how to sail, through safe, fun and educational programs, inspiring learning, personal growth and leadership that provide pathways for their future.
In summer 2019, we are offering Learn to Sail classes that introduce the sport of sailing to all middle school youth.
