Keelboat Sailing School at HYC


HYC is hosting One Design Sailing Academy in order to offer sail training at Bluffers Park. We are offering courses for both adults and youth. The adult courses are called “Adult Start Keelboat Sailing” and “Keelboat Day Skipper (Basic Cruising)”.

For members, these courses are an excellent way for you to get your crew well trained. Encourage your crew to sign up or send your child for a great summer experience! The result will be a more effective crew and a much safer boat.
For non-members, the courses will offer you an excellent introduction to the sport of sailing.

In the 18-hour "Adult Start Keelboat Sailing" course, students are introduced to the sport from a complete beginner level, with the aim of becoming familiar with the basics of sailing in order to feel comfortable as an active crew member on a sailboat.
Total cost is $563.87
