Summer Camp Guide

Summer Camp Showcase: Sail Montauk

Learn to sail on beautiful East End waters.

The Sail Montauk Junior Sailing Program will teach kids ages 9–16 to sail on one of the East End’s most popular and scenic locations.

Operating out of Gurney’s Star Island, each boat is limited to 4–5 students, along with a certified instructor. Classes will meet dockside each morning for briefing and instruction before heading out for open water sailing and hands-on learning. Once comfortable handling their boats, students will fine tune their skills with racing and games.
