CYC is offering an opportunity for women to learn and build camaraderie among female sailors of all levels of experience, from newbies to advanced.
Classes are held Friday evenings on boats at Shilshole Marina that belong to CYC members. We will be meeting at assigned boats between 5:30 and 6:00 pm. Each week following the classes we will meet for a social at CYC. Dinner is included and there is a no host bar available.Women's Learn to Sail - Fridays May 1, 8, and 15
This is a great course to see if sailing is for you. It is also an opportunity for experienced sailors to get out on the water with other women to share your knowledge and further develop your skills.
In this course you will learn some of the basics – parts of the boat, safety, basic knots and where to use them, getting the boat ready, getting sails up, SAILING, wind direction, and teamwork.
The only requirements are enthusiasm and non-marking shoes. If you have a PFD you are welcome to bring it, but the boats will have them available for use. Wear warm layers and be prepared for rain as the weather can shift quickly. The temperature on the water feels much cooler than on land, especially when you factor in the wind.
$75 for members / $150 for non-members
Please note we are not able to prorate to accommodate missed sessions.
Online registration is open to members in February and opens to non-members in April.
Class sizes are limited so sign up early to reserve your spot!
