Courses

Beginner 1 and Beginner 2 Opti – Starting to Sail

This camp introduces kids to the basics of sailing a small boat by putting them in the driver’s seat of an Opti sailboat. An Opti is a very stable boat with one sail so it is ideal for beginners. The main focus of this repeatable camp is the development of basic skills for a strong sailing foundation. Beginner 1 is a good fit for brand new sailors and Beginner 2 is good for returning beginning sailors.

No experience necessary                                    Register for Beginner Opti 1
Price: $410, $360 for members                         Register for Beginner Opti 2

Intermediate Opti – Developing Independent Skills

This camp is a good fit for sailors who have had several weeks of previous sailing camps. Increasingly advanced concepts are introduced, the goal by the end of camp is to have all sailors comfortable sailing both upwind and downwind in medium breeze.

Prerequisite: Two or three weeks of Beginner Opti (or equivalent)
Price: $410, $360 for members                                          Register for Intermediate Opti

Once your child has completed the intermediate class or equivalent, they should talk to an instructor about further sailing opportunities, including our race team. Additional coaching and regattas are very low-cost.

Instructors

All instructors are U.S. Sailing certified and CPR/First Aid trained, have a Washington Boater safety card and have passed a WA State background check. Many have years of personal sailing and teaching experience and some have raced on their college teams. There will also be Junior assistants, experienced sailors under 18 who are on CYC’s racing team who support the lead instructor and can provide individual instruction to struggling sailors.

Registrations canceled within 4 weeks of the first day of class will be refunded only if CYC is able to fill the vacated spot, less a $25 processing fee. No refunds will be issued once a class has started. CYC reserves the right to cancel programs that do not meet the minimum number of participants, and will attempt to place participants in an alternate program or, if unable, will issue a refund.
