Clinton Sailing Club


Would your child – or a friend – like to learn to sail? Here is their chance for summer 2018!

Clinton Sailing Club (CSC) is offering “Sailorships” for Clinton kids in need ages 8-18 to participate in a FREE one-week sailing lesson experience in summer 2018.

Sailors learn parts of the boat, important sailing terms, and experience first hand sailing a boat in Clinton Harbor! Lesson dates are every week in summer starting the week of June 18th and running through August 24th. Lessons take place at Clinton Town Beach daily from 9-12 and 1-4pm.

CSC offers both beginner and intermediate sessions. If you’ve sailed with us before, feel free to take beginner again and have even more fun – or move up to intermediate if you’re ready for a new challenge.

Sailorships are awarded based on financial need. Applying for a Sailorship is easy. Just tell us why you would like to learn to sail this summer! It’s important that kids write this, not parents. CSC’s Board of Directors will review the essays and determine scholarship winners.

To apply, click here to download and print an application. We have an open application period – so feel free to apply at any time. Note, however, that our sessions fill up and Sailorships run out! So if you want to apply for summer 2018, don’t wait…

Please email completed applications to, or send to:
