Winter Sailing Program

Winter Sailing Program

HYC is partnering with Norfolk Yacht and Country Club to host Frostbiting for any juniors interested in keeping up with their racing skills during the winter. This program is open to both juniors of HYC members and juniors of nonmembers on our c420s and Optis (Optis and FJs at NYCC). Juniors MUST have racing experience. Junior Frostbiting occurs on Saturdays from December to the end of February from 9:00am to 12:30pm. We alternate Saturdays from HYC to NYCC. Cost is only $20/junior and we meet in the Junior Shack.

We will assess the combination of wind, air and water temperature each Saturday to make sure it is safe enough for the juniors to go out in.
