Our Mission:

To be responsible for the administration and development of youth sailing and related activities within I-LYA.

The Yacht and Sailing Clubs that make up the I-LYA Juniors sail in US SAILING Area E and are from as far south as the Columbus and Cincinnati, OH area - as far north as the Detroit area and cover from Erie, PA to the east and Indianapolis to the west.

As an organization we promote:

Our racing program began in 1999 as the brainchild of Joanna Tunnicliff and Jay Hawkins. Now hundreds of sailors, from beginners to "rock stars", participate each year in I-LYA Jr. racing. Regattas are held at different yacht clubs (click the Calendar and Events Tab above) throughout the sailing season.  Click on Committee and Contacts Tab above if you'd like more info on clubs in your area. Many have excellent Learn-to-Sail Camps and Programs.  Give it a try. We think you'll enjoy it as much as we do!
