The Junior Sailing Programme is a major initiative of the The Exuma Sailing Club supported by donations made to The Exuma Foundation. The Foundation has sponsored the building and purchase of 4 'E' class sloops for the Club, and helps with the maintenance and repair costs of these boats each year. The Junior sailors train year round and compete in local regattas and the National Junior Championship.

The first ever yearly Opti racing event, the largest in The Bahamas, will be taking place right here in Exuma. As the host club, we have many responsibilities to take care of to ensure that this event is a success. To make this event a resounding success and show off our beautiful Exuma, we will need the help of everyone to contribute financially and for individuals to give their time.
