Shinnecock Yacht Club is a member of the Peconic Gardiners Junior Sailing Association.
The Mission of Peconic Gardiners Junior Sailing Association is to offer support for junior sailors at member junior sailing programs. The support offered is all encompassing with a focus on encouraging Juniors to experience the joy of sailing and an appreciation of the natural resources present on the Eastern End of Long Island.
PGJSA promotes the Corinthian spirit of sailing among its participants and encourages the teaching of positive lessons that create self-confidence, foster teamwork, build character and enable all members to have a life-long love of the sea and its benefits.
Using these guiding principles, PGJSA strives to support both serious competition and recreational opportunities for all sailors no matter what skill level.
PGJSA encourages members to sail in local venues as well as those outside the area and will offer opportunities for member clubs to share expertise and venues.
