2019 Adult Sailing Programming

 

CYC had a very successful 2018 season for our Adult sailors, getting over 80 adults on the water through our Learn to Sail programming and Sip N Sail activities we are looking forward to another year of adult sailing! Please find class times/ schedules as well as additional information about our Sip N Sail programming below. CYC’s Adult Sailing Program is designed for adults who have little or no knowledge about sailing to more experienced sailors looking to get more time on the water under the watchful and encouraging eye of a coach. We are also adding an additional program this year, for one week only- Family Learn To Sail.

 

Spring Adult Learn to Sail

This program will focus on teaching students everything that they will need to know to go sailing on their own, buy their own boat, race more competitively in a different boat or crew on one of our member’s racing sailboats.

Rigging, sail theory, crew positions, knot tying, and teamwork are just some of the topics covered in this course. The courses combine classroom instruction with on-the-water practice. All classes are designed to build skills and confidence in a safe and encouraging environment.

They are also an opportunity to meet new friends, make sailing connections, and learn skills that will keep you safe and comfortable on a boat for the rest of your life. Registration will be capped at 8 sailors and an online link will be sent out through the CYC email system.

Dates: May 19th, 26th, June 2nd & June 9th

Time: 1pm- 4pm

Members Cost: $125 Non-Members Cost: $175

Adult Continuing Education Program

The Adult Continuing Education program is designed for sailors who have taken an Adult Learn To Sail class and want to continue their development on the water under a coach's eye. Although this program will follow a more ‘Intermediate’ type curriculum it is tailored to the students in the class and their goals. You won’t be forced to learn to race if you don’t ever want to! More time in the boats and on the tiller, means you are becoming a more confident sailor and that is the ultimate goal.
