The Dunewood Yacht Club offers a long tradition of sailing instruction for a wide range of ages and all skill levels. It is one of the only sailing programs on Fire Island and is a staple of the Fire Island community.

The DYC offers instruction on Sunfish sailboats. Sunfish are one person racing boats that can fit a maximum of four people.  After passing a swim test, all students have the opportunity to work with a team of experienced instructors and lifelong sailors. Students are assigned to classes based on age and skill level. The DYC offers the opportunity to make friends—classes are filled of kids from all around Fire Island. Sailing at the DYC is just as much fun as it is educational.
