2019 Junior Sailing Program

On November 9, 2018, Team Bayview will be the recipient of the Sutton Award at the DRYA awards banquet. We were chosen based on our continued leadership in the way we run regattas, our dedication to put safety first and our push to have higher certifications for our coaching staff.


Since its inception in 1957, the BYC JS program has been teaching safe boat handling, motivating young people toward gaining confidence and competence in all phases of sailing as well as promoting good fellowship.

The Bayview Junior Sailing Program (BYCJS) welcomes you to the 2019 season with a roster of instructors and Program Directors all experienced in teaching youngsters the skill and joy of small boat sailing. All instructors have been certified by the US Sailing Association.
