From the President
Greetings from a lovely Spring day in New Bern,
I am posting this note to inform everyone interested that we have established both a way to hold the Sailing Camps this year and a final schedule. It is a limited schedule with conditions. Our intention is to provide Sailing training in a safe environment and we think that this compromise (for this year only!!) will do just that. Please feel free to sign up using the link here on the home page.
We look forward to seeing you this Summer.
Thank you for your patience.
President, Edward Teach Youth Sailing Association

Have your 8-16 year old participate in ETYSA Sailing Camp this summer to learn to sail with quality instructors at Blackbeard Sailing Club. Sailing Instructors are Level 1 certified and will be supported by a team of local sailing volunteers. Attendees will be trained to sail on the Neuse River.
