Scholarship Program

The Niantic Bay Sailing Academy (NBSA) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization based at the Niantic Bay Yacht Club in Niantic, CT.

We offer a 4 or 8 week summer program (June 20 – August 12) providing instruction for ages 7 – 18.  All abilities are welcome – from beginner sailors to those who seek more competitive racing.  Classes meet several times per week for several hours depending on ability. Participants must be able to swim and pass a swim test before they can begin sailing. Boats are provided.

Full or partial scholarships for the 4 or 8 week program are available to students. We are especially seeking local youth who may not have otherwise been exposed to sailing, a sport which offers camaraderie, fun, competition and the development of lifelong skills.

We hope that the experiences gained through the NBSA program can encourage youth to make sailing a lifelong passion, whether it be cruising, competitive racing, day sailing, or just enjoying the outdoors on the water.

To apply for a full or partial scholarship, please complete the NBSA Sailing Scholarship Application by May 1, 2022.
