    Ballard High School is back and they're looking great! 6 teams competed this past weekend at a fleet race scrimmage at Sail Sand Point. After a day of shifty and difficult conditions, Ballard won the event with a solid 30 point lead on the second place boat. This is a promising start for our season and the team has fleet race district championships in sight.

    CYC Families -

    The start of our summer juniors program has been delayed due to COVID-19 and state orders but, we are excited to share that we will be making every effort to get as many kids as we can sailing this summer. We are moving forward with all plans to support summer camps, summer racing and Family Fun Nights. In compliance with state orders and to ensure activities can include all the elements that make them great, we have decided resuming most activities in Phase 3 makes sense. Our best guess for King County being in Phase 3 is mid-July. We continue to monitor the situation closely and remain optimistic.

    We are excited to share the summer with the kids and families that make this program great. Some activities have been expanded to include non-sailing siblings too!

    • Summer Camps – Starting in phase 3 –We are excited to offer camps supporting kids of all skill levels including beginners.
      • For those affected by cancellations the weeks of July 6 and 13, we will be rescheduling into August camps and offering penalty-free cancellations. Please contact the office at office@cycseattle.org no later than 6/26. Starting 6/27, the office will re-schedule campers to August with priority given to early registrants.
    • Summer Racing – It is time to go sailing! - US sailing has confirmed they plan to run races in August and September! Bellingham Youth Regatta, JAM Regatta, Junior Olympics, and Octoberfest and Opti Champs are all still scheduled to run. We are ready to get the team together and start practicing June 30. 
      • The coaching fee for the summer season is $325 for CYC members and $375 for nonmembers. Registration is open through July 5 and available here 
        • Coaching fees include: Tuesday and Thursday evening coaching for the season, coaching and support at regattas. 
        • Opti coaching will be available Wednesdays with 5 or more registered participants.
    • Friday Family Fun Nights – Youth-lead instruction with food and fun! – new entertainment is available for non-sailing siblings so the whole family can enjoy the club. 
      • “Dry-Dock” entertainment in the clubhouse for non-sailing siblings and for when the weather doesn’t permit sailing. Our goal is to make Fridays a truly dependable, rain or shine event for the whole family. 
      • There will be two sessions each Friday evening with start times at 4:00 and 6:00. We encourage kids under 10 to attend the 4pm session but feel free to attend the session that makes sense for you and your family.

    What to expect next:

    • volunteer sign-up for cooking/grilling, ice-cream scoopers, and other ways to volunteer
    • dock work party 
    • boat preparation work party 
    • survey to help us finalize details for Friday Nights to maximize fun.

    On behalf of Corinthian Yacht Club and the Juniors program, we could not be more excited to be sailing with all of you very soon! If you have any questions, we are happy to help and can be reached at juniors@cycseattle.org

    Very best regards,

    Shelagh Hansen

    48 youth sailors between the ages of 8 and 15 from USA East Coast/West Coast, and Canada East Coast/West Coast competed in the 2-day regatta.  CYC’s excellent race committee held 3 races on Saturday and 4 on Sunday.

    A special thank you to the regatta chair Erin Timms, and to Matt Wood, Charley Rathkopf and his entire race committee, the on the water judges, the CYC Office, Karen, and all CYC staff, and all volunteers who made this event run so smoothly - many hands made for light work.

    Photos from the event can be viewed here.

    Seattle, WA – Sometimes an event occurs where everyone realizes something special or magical occurred.  Such was the case the weekend of June 29 – July 1 when six, unaware, 11-13 year old boys joined with two (hesitant) adults to form the nucleus of a first ever 3-day clinic at Corinthian Yacht Club - Seattle.

    Using the venerable Hobie 16 as the main platform (and one Hobie Wave), the intrepid sailors would head out of Shilshole Marina every day on the three 16s and Wave.  Conditions could not have been better.

    Friday started out so light that several of the kids flipped the Wave on to its side and used the upward hull as a jumping/diving platform into the Puget Sound waters.  When the wind filled in they got a shot at some light air sailing.   Saturday saw a nice medium breeze on flat waters, which gave everyone the opportunity to practice trapezing out over the water on their way to West Point for a picnic on the beach.  Sunday came with even stronger breeze and lumpy waters which really tested the new Hobie sailors with double trapezing and flying of hulls as they raced around a mock race course.   Each of the Hobie 16s had a youth mentor on board who has already graduated to the experienced level and is actively racing.

    CYC was fantastic!  In addition to the use of the downstairs for classroom instruction, boats were stored in the evening on their floating dock.  The students got a LOT of sailing time in varied conditions.  Hobie Division 4 sponsored the regatta, in conjunction with the Multihull Youth SAIL Foundation – a newly formed non-profit foundation dedicated to getting more kids out on multis.  Additional clinics have been requested for both youth and women. 

    Big thanks to US Sailing instructor Tim Webb, who was ably assisted by Peter Nelson, Laura Sullivan, Bob Combie, Will Nelson, Jaedon Bott, Jennifer Hoag and a slew of other volunteers.
