Youth Sailing Program

at RYC

The 2016 Rockport Yacht Club †Youth "Learn to Sail" program is on Saturday, August 27th. † This lesson is offered at no cost to members and non-members alike.† The class will be open for ages 10 - 18.

Session size will be limited to 8 participants. Sign up at the RYC Friday Night Happy Hour, or via email to: Bill Coxwell at coxwell@sbcglobal.net.

The lesson will cover basic sailing using our clubs Sailboat Fleet, 2 Cyclones and 4 Sunfish launching from our small boat dock adjacent to the clubhouse.†

The Sunfish is hailed as probably the most popular sailboat ever. The Sunfish is still going strong after more than 50 years of production. The boat is a lot of fun for both beginners and experienced sailors alike. This is a daysailer for active sailing, as it's mostly a single-handed boat and you're going to get wet. But for sheer fun and ease of sailing, the Sunfish is terrific. As long as you remember to move your body (the ballast) when you tack and gybe, you really can't go wrong with a Sunfish.¬† Keep in mind this is an active wet boat. The class will include swimming and capsize drills.†

The class will take place Aug 27th. The action will be nonstop over this day, with everything from; basic water safety, what makes a sailboat work, sailing terms, Sunfish parts terms, Rigging the Sunfish, swimming, capsize and recovery, to sailing, tacking and gybing, and of course, docking.

The class will be at RYC

Saturday 8/27, 9:00 to 3:00


Class size will be limited to 8 participants, sign up at The RYC Friday Night Happy Hour, or via email to: Bill Coxwell
