    Rookie Rally is moving to webcast! Instructor Bruce Van Deventer will be teaching the course online using Webex. Due to Covid-19, the on-the-water portion of the course may not occur.

    Come and join us and learn the rules and skills to race sailboats!

    Corinthian Yacht Club offers several ways to help you get started sailboat racing or brush up on your skills. The Rookie Rally Educational series provides a solid foundation of racing skills via classroom instruction, hands-on exercises, and on-the-water activities. It is primarily a classroom course with one-on-the water session. Our educational committee members are also glad to meet with you to help you work towards your racing goals. 

    Bruce Van Deventer will be leading this educational series. Bruce is an experienced keelboat and dinghy racer, competing in everything from club races to international and world championships. He is also an experienced race officer and currently campaigns a 505 and until recently, a Melges 24.

    Tuesday, April 28: Welcome to the Racecourse;  Walk through a typical race, handicap racing, one design, distance vs buoy races, paperwork/organizational requirements, conduct of a race per the racing rules of sailing, reading sailing instructions, starting sequence, and basic rules.

    On-the-water Training: TBA

We will also provide you with the opportunity to come out and help the Race Committee aboard the Committee Boat on a weeknight race, which puts you in the center of the action! 

    For this course you will need appropriate sailing gear, including a PFD, and basic sailing skills. This is a great opportunity to expand your skill base, move to another position on the boat, or start racing your own boat!

    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!

    Enjoy potlucks, the Nordland store, oyster BBQ, hiking, kayaking and even the local goat cheese farm. This is an all round fun time for the whole family.

    All but hidden on the west side of Marrowstone Island, Mystery Bay State Park offers a great escape for visitors arriving by land or by water. Boaters can dock or lay anchor and stroll along the grassy and gravelly shoreline or enjoy the inlet’s pristine waters. Take along a kayak or paddle board for a day of recreation. Take in the Olympic mountain views from one of six picnic tables. Cook up those oysters and clams in one of three fire rings, (fires allowed during daylight hours) and enjoy an island sunset before heading back to your boat.

    The Plan

    Anchoring Notes: Hail the CYC Raft-Up Master on VHF 68 as you are approaching Mystery Bay or call Jenny (206 384 0053) or Tim (206 354 9039) The raft-up will be larger boats in the center with smaller boats on the out side. If you do not want to raft up, you can anchor on your own or Mystery Bay State Park has mooring buoys and linear dock space, if available, first come first served. If you want details about how to enter the channel leading into Kilisut Harbor contact the cruise leader - it can be a bit tricky

    The Mystery Bay State Park is located approximately one half mile north of the Nordland General Store (which also faces Mystery Bay) on Flagler Road (SR 116). The staff is welcoming, and it really is the center of the island.  An astounding selection smoked salmon, oysters, and ice cream.  Great beer and wine selection, and of course, they have ice to keep your cocktails nicely chilled. They also have a dinghy dock that is accessible when not at a minus tide.
