Getting kids out on the water involves a lot of help from a lot of people.  If you are able to help out by towing boats up to a regatta, we need you to fill out a little bit of paperwork.  Please complete the towing packet and return it to the Junior Office.


Opportunities do exist for Junior Program participants in need of some financial assistance.  All requests will be kept in strict confidence.  Two possible avenues to obtain financial assistance are:
  • The Southwestern Junior Foundation - A 501(c)(3) with the goal of extending sailing and angler experiences to the youth of San Diego County who are in need of financial assistance.
  • The Southwestern Yacht Club Junior Advisory Committee maintains some funding for scholarships.  Inquiries should be sent to the SWYC Junior Program Director along with three items:
    • A letter from the applicant stating why they are seeking a scholarship and wish to participate in the Program.
    • A letter of good citizenship from a teacher, counselor, coach, or someone of similar standing who can speak to the student's character.
    • A copy of the family's front page of their most recent tax return, showing the annual household/family income.
