Start Sailing with Team Pequot!

You do not need to be a member of Pequot Yacht Club to sail with TeamPequot.  You are welcome to bring your own boat or charter a boat from Pequot (Optimist, Skiff, Feva or 420).  If looking to charter an ILCA (formerly Laser), there are a number of available options in the area to charter from, including The Boat Locker in Bridgeport.

Here's how the program works:


Registration runs through the beginning of the second session of the program 

Early Registration Discounted Fee on or before March 31: $315

Registration Fee as of April 1: $394

*Registration Fee is Non-Refundable after April 1st*
*Charter cancellation fee applies after confirmation of charter*
*Program/Charter fees are Non-Refundable once the program begins*

During the registration flow, you must execute the Junior Sailing Association Waiver; you will be redirected to the JSA-LIS site to create an account with JSA and to electronically sign the Waiver, which covers both Pequot and JSA participation.

You do not have to be a Pequot Yacht Club member to enroll, but you will need a club sponsor.  If you don't have a club sponsor, please indicate so when prompted during the registration process.  Participation by non-members is not guaranteed, but every effort is made to accommodate any child who has an interest in the program

A non-member grandchild may be automatically sponsored by a member grandparent.

Registration is first-come, first-served. A wait list will be established when class size caps are met.

**All sailors must provide their own USCG-approved PFD**
**420 Crew must provide their own well-fitted, quick-release harness**


In addition to the registration fee, you will be charged a Program Fee according to the table below. You will be billed in March - June. The Program Fee must be paid in full prior to participating in the program.  You may supply your own boat or charter from PYC.  See fee details below.
