Participate in one of our Programs
Are you interested in having your sailor participate in an Exchange Program? Or perhaps you think you and your club would be a good host? We are looking for excited sailors who want to share their culture, language and community either as a host or traveler.
Want to host?
We want to keep sharing this program with other experienced sailors who race in ALL different boats. Do you have a competitive Optimist, Club 420, Laser, Laser Radial, 29er, or other dingy racing team at your yacht club? We are looking for Clubs who want to invite international sailors to participate in your program.
The responsibilities as a host club are:
Organize excited host families with sailors in the junior program
Provide boats and equipment for your guest sailor (excluding spars and sails)
Provide relevant program costs and prices, information about your club and it's surroundings and other important information
What you get in return:
An opportunity to make your Club more internationally recognized
Provide an incredible experience for the host families and their children
Have a priority in sending youth sailors in your junior program to participate in the Youth Sailing Exchange abroad
Want to travel?
We are looking for motivated, mature and responsible sailors who want to get better at sailing as well as see a new country, make new friends and learn about a new culture and language.
Along with the host club, we will pair you up with a host family who have a sailor(s) in the local junior program. You will be a part of that family as if you are their own son or daughter. Meals eaten or packed from home will be provided by the host family. You will also be provided with the basic equipment needed to sail, except for sails and spars in the case of Optimist or Laser sailing.
In exchange for being hosted you should be willing to reciprocate by offering to host a sailor at your home yacht club sometime in the future.
