Youth Boating Center

An introduction to on-water adventure!

Young sailors and their families are invited to stop by the Youth Boating Center (Booth: East 626) to start their boating adventures. An introduction to sailing, STEM, and the marine world, the staff at the Youth Boating Center can educate kids and families on the wind, propulsion, local sailing opportunities, knot tying, and more through fun hands-on activities.

Plus, little mariners (suggested age 3-8) can enjoy time on the water using the Aqua Paddler boats. Lifejackets will be provided.
