High School Sailing has grown tremendously over the last decade both nationally and locally. The Rochester Yacht Club is proud to host one of the largest programs in the district. With the sailing school's fleet of twenty 420s and an impressive Jr. Sailing facility, the RYC program has been able to host 80 high school students a season. Rochester High School Sailing teams are part of the NYISA-NW (North West Interscholastic Sailing Association) league of the MASSA district (Mid-Atlantic Sailing Association). This district stretches all the way down to Virginia. The MASSA district is part of the national organization for High School Sailing called the ISSA (Interscholastic Sailing Association).
