CYC Sailing School gives the more experienced junior sailors the chance to compete as members of the Race Teams. Teams travel locally, regionally and nationally to compete in regattas. Most classes run all day. Daily lunch is included in program tuition. Placement in all classes is subject to approval by the Sailing School staff.  


Safety is crucial in all of our programs. Students must demonstrate comfort in and around water to participate. They also must provide their own life jacket and wear rubber-soled, closed-toed shoes during class.
