We also teach a Cruising class in Sunfish, Lasers,Ynglings, and others keelboats.

For Adult Members
SYC offers adult sailing clinics Wednesday and Friday afternoons from 1:30-3:30 which are taught by our program director.  The clinics are for all of skill levels and can be customized to meet the needs of the sailors in a given clinic.  In addition, we offer private instruction, and several "Sip and Sail" evening events, where we enjoy cocktails and a chalk talk from one of our expert members. This can serve as an introduction or a reintroduction, and whet your appetite to get out on the water!
