    CYC is offering an opportunity for women to learn to sail, improve their sailing skills, and build camaraderie among female sailors of all levels of experience, from newbies to advanced. Participants will be assigned to boats according to their levels of comfort and skill.

    Classes are held on boats at Shilshole Marina that belong to CYC members. We will be meeting at assigned boats between 5:30 and 6:00 to rig, and leaving the dock at 6:15 sharp. Following the class each week we will meet for a social at CYC. Dinner is included in the course fee and there is a no host bar available.

    Session 1: Women’s Sailing – April 18th , 25th , and May 2nd

    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 (personal flotation device) you are welcome to bring it, but CYC will have PFDs 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 per session for members / $125 per session for non-members

    2nd Thursday cruising social potluck

  • Register
    A popular rendezvous with dinner and entertainment in town, and a potluck breakfast before heading home Sunday.  Come watch for frequently sighted grey whales and other wildlife from the dock.  Fun for the whole family.
    Organizer:  Bret and Joyce Phillips

    Email:  b.a.philliips@pobox.com

    Detailed Description:

    Langley is a cute little town just a 3-4 hour cruise north.  Explore the shops in town, check out the brewery, or watch for grey whales feeding in the shallows off of Seawall Park.  Be sure to check out the Langley Whale Center for the latest whale sightings!

    There are plenty of dinner options in town - ranging from the casual Pizzeria to the finer Prima Bistro.  Let me know by early May if you’d like to join us at Prima Bistro, so I can adjust the reservation.  Sunday morning, we’ll have a potluck breakfast on the pier by the boats, so bring something to share.

    The linear dock has already been reserved, so no need to contact the Port of South Whidbey.  Just be sure to register here with your boat information, and we’ll pass that along so the marina can build the moorage plan.

    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. 

    Ages: 7-12

    Prerequisites: no experience necessary

    Time: Camp runs from 9:30-4:00, drop-off/pick-up is available 30 minutes before/after the camp session 

    All our sail camps require your child to pass a simple safety check in the water for liability. This safety check is performed during the morning on Monday, and does not require any swimming ability. Please be aware that if your child cannot enter the water, they will be asked to not come back and we cannot offer a refund.
