Gibson Island Junior Fleet was founded in 1924 and has operated continuously since that time.  Our goal is to safely introduce children to the joys of sailing and to support the development of their skills in line with their abilities and interests. Today, we sail Optimists, Lasers, Laser radials, 420’s, Ensigns and International 210′s.   Junior Fleet is available to any Gibson Island Club member’s child, grandchild, or guest who is a rising 3rd grader or who has turned 8 by September 1, 2016.
