Come On Kids, Set Sail!
Lakewood Yacht Club offers a unique Youth Sailing Program, with a wide variety of opportunities for children of all ages. Achieving prominence as one of the top yacht club programs in the United States, our youth sailors (the Seahorses) participate in the Texas Sailing Association Series as well as National and International Regattas worldwide. With programs that offer year-round fun for members and guests alike, with our summer sailing camps, Learn-to Sail and Advanced Racing classes there is something for every young aspiring sailor at Lakewood Yacht Club.
Under the direction of dedicated coaches, Lakewood Yacht Club’s Youth Sailing Program has grown into being the envy of other yacht clubs all over the country, not just around the Gulf Coast. The Seahorses have brought stellar recognition to the club, influencing our membership growth as families join the club so their children can learn to sail and compete, if they wish. As long-time local racer Charles Milby says of sailing as a child,“Once I learned how to crew, once I learned how to trim a spinnaker and a jib, I could go anyplace. It was a skill I learned. I could sail a 13 foot boat or a sixty foot boat; the principles are exactly the same.”
