Mariners936 is a co-ed boating program for young people ages 14 through 18 and the Mariner Junior program is for those 12-13. Both are designed to allow young people an opportunity to have fun with their friends in sailboats of all sizes at a very low cost. Through a carefully developed program, participants progress from what knowledge they have about boating (often not knowing anything) upon joining the program to being competent in handling sailboats of all sizes.
The Mariner Program is fun, exciting and competitive. It allows for an independent choice of activities and it is flexible so that a young person can join and still have time for school, job and/or sports and other school related activities.
Classroom instruction, Catalina and Channel Island trips, Mariner competitions with other Mariner groups, sailboat racing, maintenance instruction and free sailing are some of the opportunities that members can take part in.
