As you may be familiar, Nantucket Community Sailing (NCS) is an educational non-profit that provides affordable sailing and water sports access to the public. NCS is located at their Jetties Sailing Center. The program annually awards roughly $90,000 in sailing scholarships to local residents. NCS has estimated that nearly 1,000 students from on and off-island enroll in their sailing programs.
Registration opens for summer programming in late January and classes are available through the season. NCS offers one and two week-long programs at Polpis Harbor and Jetties Beach for youth ages 4 to 18. Whether you are a beginner, intermediate or novice sailor, NCS has classes for all skill levels.
