The Pacific Corinthian Youth Foundation is a non-profit organization that sponsors and instructs youth sailing in Channel Islands Harbor. The Foundation was started in 1992 by members of the Pacific Corinthian Yacht Club and uses part of the PCYC grounds and guest docks to run the programs. We want your children to learn to sail and have a great time while they do it. Learning basic sailing skills is supplemented with fun activities such as sailing to the park, having picnics, going on treasure hunts, sailing on bigger boats, playing sponge tag and making sails.


The Foundation serves all of Channel Islands Harbor and its surrounding communities. The Foundation’s Board of Directors is composed of representatives from Pacific Corinthian Yacht Club, Anacapa Yacht Club, and the community. It also received grants for the Channel Islands Harbor Foundation and the California Department of Boating and Waterways.


PCYF uses and maintains a large fleet of US Sabots, Opti's, Lasers, and FJ's
