REGISTRATION OPENS FOR FIRST WINTER SAILING CAMP DEC. 27 – 30TH
We’re finishing off 2021 with yet another first for MSYSP: a mini winter sailing camp for kids ages 7 – 13 December 27th through 30th from 10am to 1pm at the Upper Keys Sailing Club.  The mini camp will model our popular summer sailing camp with fun sailing on a variety of different boats, paddle board and kayak excursions as well as arts and crafts.  

Campers should bring a reusable water bottle, snack, long-sleeved shirt, bathing suit, a life jacket, a towel and a change of clothes.  Parents may drop off and pick up their children 30 minutes before the start and end of each day. Parents are welcome to park and tour the grounds and take pictures with their children on Monday, but will be required to leave by 10:15am. The cost is $200 for full time Florida Keys and Homestead children and $295 for all other non resident campers. 

We’re excited to be finishing off the year on the water with your kids!  Here’s the link to register:

YOUTH SAILORS SET THEIR SIGHTS ON 13TH ANNUAL BUCCANEER BLAST REGATTA 
The Florida Keys largest sailing event is ready to launch February 4 – 6, 2022 at Rowell’s Waterfront Park in Key Largo. Nearly 260 youth sailors from 14 different states and the Caribbean competed in the weekend regatta this past February. The 2022 event is inviting youth windsurfers for the first time and welcoming back optimist and laser class sailors ages 8 through 18.  

But sailors won’t be the only ones enjoying the event in 2022. We’re inviting the Upper Keys community to catch some of the near-shore racing and join in on the raffle fun Saturday, Feb. 5th from 2:30pm – 6:30pm at Rowell’s Waterfront Park. 

Registration for the 2022 Buccaneer Blast Regatta is now open on Regatta Network.  Many more details on this event coming soon.
