High School Sailing & College Sailing

Welcome to the 2018/2019 Scholastic Sailing Season at SDYC! We are proud to once again be hosting Francis-Parker, Cathedral Catholic, The Bishop's School, Santa Fe Christian, and Point Loma High School teams; as well as adding the San Diego State University college team in 2019.

Scholastic sailing at SDYC occurs out of the Malin Burnham Sailing Center, with each sailor paying fees to the Club for use of the boats and facility, and each team providing its own coaching. Here’s what SDYC supplies:

  • (24) 2017 Club Flying Junior dinghies!
  • (24) suits of scholastic race sails, NEW this Fall!
  • Ample coach boats and buoys to facilitate great practices.
  • Multiple classrooms equipped with modern video, audio and wifi technology.
  • (4) 3-boat trailers for travel to away regattas (parent/adult volunteer towing).


SDYC provides the use of some assets and facilities during the school year for a number of San Diego area High School and College sailing teams. The following represents a summary of policies and guidelines for all participants and organizers:

  1. The Scholastic Sailing program at SDYC is a privilege to the participants and their coaches. Participants and coaches shall at all times show the utmost respect of the boats, equipment, SDYC members and SDYC facilities.
  2. Scholastic sailing team coaches shall be under the direct supervision of the SDYC Junior Sailing Director, and are expected to ensure that their team members follow all SDYC rules and requirements. 
  3. The Junior Director shall accept applications from a number of qualified teams that adequately fill the allotted time for practice during the week and high school regattas during selected weekends. The number of boats shall be assigned by the Junior Director to reflect an equal and fair distribution and usage by the number of teams whose applications have been accepted.
  4. Prior to accepting a team's application, the Junior Director must first receive completed applications from all participants including but not limited to: Assumption of Risl / Indemnity Agreement, Damage Waiver, High School Sailing Charter Boat Procedures and Motorboat Policies and Procedures and all fees.
  5. Non-member High School & College Sailing participants shall have limited access to SDYC grounds only during the times outlined in the previously approved team schedule. Non-member participants shall not have access to the pool, Jacuzzi, clubhouse areas and shall limit their onshore activities to the Junior Sailing area only unless in accordance with SDYC Guest Rules.
  6. The charter fee paid by each scholastic sailor covers use of the boat, sails and normal wear. Damage beyond normal wear such as that resulting from collision with other boats or during docking will be billed to the involved teams.
  7. The SDYC Junior Sailing program shall have priority over scholastic sailing participants in the use of SDYC sailboats, support boats and equipment.
