TSS Youth Sailing, Inc.

About Us

TSSYS 2019 Board and Teaching StaffTSS Youth Sailing, Inc., is a federal 501(c)(3) charity and a Florida non-profit organization.  Our primary purpose is teaching kids and teens to sail, an activity that fosters responsibility, teamwork, and awareness.

Sailing adventures can change the course of a young person’s life.  Sailors are a diverse community, respectful of each other and the natural environment.  Sailing builds bonds across generations and geography and skills and friendships that can last a lifetime.

From the first day, young sailors, ages 7 to 17, are on the water in small boats, having fun and learning the ropes in a safe, organized program of sailing activities.  They are rigging, launching, sailing and landing a small sailboat single-handedly.  Advanced students are sharpening their skills for enhanced performance.  

Our instructors are certified to teach by U.S. Sailing, the national authority.  Our instructors and assistants are also certified for CPR, First Aid and Boating Safety. 

We are committed to promoting the sport of sailing.
