Peninsula Youth Sailing Foundation

Learn to Sail, Prepare to Race, Compete for Fun

From our family to yours!

Thank you for a great year on the water. In addition to a major move to fantastic new facilities, we had more new sailors on the water and more of our veteran sailors competing at an elite national level than ever before. That is all thanks to our amazing community of coaches and parent volunteers. As a non-profit foundation, we couldn't make this big of an impact without you.

About Us

Peninsula Youth Sailing Foundation (PYSF) provides instruction, coaching, practice, and racing opportunities for youth in the San Francisco Bay Area. Some have become top sailors in the US.

Year-round sailing programs provide opportunities for kids to learn to sail and develop sailing skills using Optimists, Flying Juniors, 420s, and Lasers. Sailors are trained to compete in local regattas in preparation for events along the West Coast. Clinics are offered for experienced members and summer camps are a fun way for young beginners to learn to sail, and race, in small boats.

Our Mission

To provide a comprehensive sailing program for all youth in the Bay Area. From learn-to-sail to elite travel teams, our classes stress safety and cultivate the values of character, community and competitiveness. Our program instills lifelong enjoyment and stewardship of our waterways, oceans and world environment.
