Mission Statement

The Pequot Junior Sailing Program teaches young sailors the essential elements of performance boat handling and seamanship. It instills in them a respect for the sea and the value of teamwork, cooperative learning and good sportsmanship. And, most importantly, the Pequot Junior Program creates sailors who will enjoy and contribute to the sport of sailing for their entire lives.

TEAM PEQUOT is our club culture which emphasizes the importance of teamwork and cooperative learning. Each sailor helps each other rig and launch the boats, works together on the towline, and de-rigs at the end of the day. No one leaves the dock until the whole class is finished and all boats are put away.
