Community Youth Sailing Program

There are a variety of successful youth sailing programs around Biscayne Bay, but they are mostly focused on racing. Yet there are many kids who would love to go sailing if they could go on the same boat as their friends. They don’t necessarily care about racing, they just want to have fun!  Our RS Venture with the weighted centerboard is perfect for this because it’s modern, exciting and safe. By easily removing adaptive seating and other adaptive aids (which simply snap in and out of the boat), the RS Venture accommodates up to eight kids!



Team Paradise's Community Youth Sailing Program

Unplug from electronic devices and tune in to nature!  Team Paradise is pleased to offer its Community Youth Sailing Program for boys and girls from eight to 17 years of age. Our new fleet of RS Venture boats is the perfect platform, not only for youth, but also for those with physical disabilities and anyone interested in sailing.

Cruise around on Biscayne Bay, surfing the waves, reaching destinations such as sand banks and nearby islands that provide opportunities for a swim! The Community Youth Sailing Program is recreational and non-competitive in nature.  Team Paradise also offers a summer sailing camp in June and July.

Our curriculum provides a measurable outcome. Participants have the opportunity to learn about:  basic sailing, navigation and knot tying, local weather conditions and how tides and thermal conditions affect mariners and those living on and around Biscayne Bay, marine life and the unique habitat of Biscayne Bay!

Coaches and safety protocol provide for a fun-filled experience! The coaching staff includes local sailors who grew up sailing on Biscayne Bay.  We provide the life-jackets and you can be sure that safety is always our main priority!
