Y-Knot Sailing

About Y-Knot


Y-Knot Sailing​ ​strives to make all aspects of sailing accessible to individuals with disabilities by ​​creating​​​ ​​opportunities, providing education, and ​promoting adaptive sailing within the greater sailing community. 


We want to build Y-Knot Sailing at YMCA Camp Chingachgook into a destination where independence, safety, knowledge, competition, and fun all come together ​to eliminate any barriers to enjoying the sport of sailing —​ ​for ​sailors with disabilities, their families, ​friends, and volunteers.​

Watch to Learn More!

Learn to Sail - (June 9, 16 & 23): An introductory, non-adaptive, program for able-bodied sailors consisting of three consecutive Sunday afternoon sessions and includes both classroom instruction and on-the-water practice. The boats we will be using are 24-foot Rainbows and 23-foot Sonars — these boats are stable, safe, roomy, and in general great boats on which to learn. This course is for students and adults ages 12 and up, though anyone under 18 must be accompanied by an adult and all proceeds go toward supporting Y-Knot Adaptive Sailing Days.
