Community Sailing Centre

The primary aim of the University of New Hampshire Community Sailing Centre Program is to have fun on the water, make new friends, build self confidence all the while teaching skills that are at once gratifying and enjoyed over a lifetime. Classes focusing on different skill levels (i.e. beginner, intermediate, advanced) are offered throughout the summer from program to program and from the beginner to the advanced and racing sailor and kayaker.

We offer programs from ages 5 on up on one of the most beautiful lakes in the state. The UNH Community Sailing Centre is home to the competitive UNH Sailing Team and the spring M.S.S.T. (Mendums Seacoast Sailing Team a combined junior high school and senior high school sailing team), and the summer M.S.S.T. program, a traveling racing team.

Summer Sailing registration will open on February 15th, 2023.

The summer registration link is on the UNH Youth Programs website,

Registration requires that an account be created for each child. Each child’s account will have a unique User Name and Password, but the same email address can be used to manage multiple child accounts. The accounts must be created with the name and birthdate of the child, not the parent. If your child currently has an account, then DO NOT create another account.

Accounts can be created and the Registration questions can be completed at any time. If your child has an account already, you may want to log in and use the ‘Forgot User Name or Forgot Password’ functions if needed. We recommend that accounts be created or logged into and the registration questions are completed BEFORE registration opens. This will make the enrollment process smoother and quicker.

Please be familiar with the UNH summer youth program Payment & Refund Procedures. It is the family responsibility to be aware of all procedures.

We also encourage you to be familiar with other information on the youth programs main website.:
