Neill Clinic

The Neill Advanced Sailing Clinic, sponsored by the CYC Foundation, is a high-level educational opportunity for the country’s most accomplished junior C420 and Laser sailors who are working hard to elevate their racing skills to the next level. 

The Neill Advanced Sailing Clinic, sponsored by the CYC Foundation, is a high-level educational opportunity for the country’s most accomplished junior C420 and Laser sailors who are working hard to elevate their racing skills to the next level. The clinic is named for Tom Neill, who was an avid Chicago Yacht Club sailor and competitor locally and nationally. The program recruits top-level college coaches from around the country to work with up and coming high school sailors. The Clinic consists of lectures and on-the-water drills including tactics, strategy, sail trim and boat speed. Coaches use daily video footage, archival footage, chalk talks, land demos and on the water exercises. The experience is rounded out with nightly guest speakers, presentations, and Chicago sight-seeing to show the sailors new avenues of sailing and a little of the amazing city of Chicago.

A Great Clinic Requires Great Coaches

The heart and soul of a great clinic is great coaches, and we’ve been fortunate to have some of the best college coaches in the country. We look for coaches who not only have a track record of collegiate success, but also are known for their positive enthusiasm and interest in helping sailors reach their potential.

We will be announcing the coaches for the 2019 Neill Advanced Sailing Clinic soon!
