Adult Sailing Classes 2022

Women’s Clinic: Mondays 4:30-6pm at the YC (Week of 7/4, class will be moved to 7/6)

Join us for a fun night of building confidence and friendships on the water. Beginners and experienced sailors alike are invited to join this class. We sail our club owned Bullseye fleet, very safe fiberglass keel boats with a main and jib. Join us afterwards on the Yacht Club deck for a glass of wine and light refreshments. Classes will be held in the Yacht Club Bullseye fleet.

Adult Beginner Tuesdays 4:30-6 at the YC

The beginner class is a hands-on introduction to sailing with no experience necessary. An instructor will be in each boat during lessons but students will be in charge of steering and sail trim as conditions warrant. A main focus of this class is safety on the water and basic maneuvers. No experience necessary. We will sail our club owned Bullseyes, which are very stable, safe fiberglass boats that have a mainsail and a jib. Join us afterwards on the YC deck for a drink and debrief.

All classes are limited. Registration information will be available soon.
