Junior Sailing Mission
The mission of the Toms River Yacht Club Junior Sailing Program is to develop knowledgeable youth sailors and to instill in them a love for the sport of sailing that will serve as a foundation for the future of our club.
“You haven’t won the race if in winning the race; you have lost the respect of your competitors.”—Paul Elvstrom, Four-Time Olympic Gold Medalist
