Teaching Love of Sailing on Pleasant Bay Since 1921

CYC Adult Sailing Classes Offered, Summer 2021

Back by popular demand, facilitated by COVID vaccinations, we WILL have adult sailing in the summer of 2021! 

Adult Sailing class will be offered to adult CYC members (21+ years of age) on Mondays from 2:00-4:30PM.  Classes will be held for 8 weeks (June 28-August 16). This class will be taught, once again, by CYC volunteer adult members in loaned Beetle Cats, 14 foot Catboats and Sunfish, where and when applicable. Classes will begin with a 20 minute “chalk talk”, and then approximately an hour and a half of sailing/teaching on Pleasant Bay, and ending with a skills wrap up in our CYC clubhouse.  With emphasis on safety and comfort, the focus will be on boat handling skills related to recreational sailing and/or racing in small boats. We will divide students as much as possible by needs and interests: skilled vs. beginners, recreational vs. competitive sailors…etc. As always, a CYC patrol boat will be out on the Bay for safety. 

You may register for this class when the CYC Summer 2021 Sailing School mailing goes live on line in mid-April. Registration is on a first-come, first served basis.  This class is popular, and will be capped at 12 students this year, so register right away if you would like to be part of this experience. 

2021 Registration now OPEN!
