Join an Afternoon Sail Class Today!

Afternoon Sail Camp (Ages 11 to 16)
Times: Monday-Thursday 1 pm-4 pm.
Program Cost: $160 Members/$200 Non-Members.
Sailboats used: Sunfish and 420

In this class, youth sailors learn the skills to sail a sunfish single handed or a 420, a

two-person boat, with another sailor or improve their skills on an Opti.  While

reinforcing all the student's previous sailing skills, these sailors will focus on on-water

instruction, steering the boat, proper sail trim, define their upwind and downwind

sailing techniques and basic right-of-way rules.  Most students upon completion of

multiple sessions of this course will be introduced to racing. Our young sailors can

take this class multiple times and will be divided based on skill levels while working

with the instructors to improve their sailing abilities.

All students will always wear life jackets.  Instructors, either in the student's boat or on

a safety boat, accompany the students.  All instructors are experienced sailors.  All

have learned to sail in the DLYC Sailing School.

The DLYC is offering a limited number of scholarships for youths who need financial

assistance to attend. Please contact Louis Csokasy at lrcsokasy@comcast.net or Jackie

Comeau Bankowski at jcmgm@aol.com

Class booking will be open to the public on March 15, 2024
