2017 WYC Youth Sailing Program

The WYC Youth Sailing Program would like to extend a warm thank you to all WYC members who generously contributed to our annual fundraising envelope drive. Individual contributions totaled over $4000! We appreciate your continued support and generosity.

The signup for the 2014 youth sailing season will take place on Wednesday, May 7, from 6:00 to 7:30 PM in the Wisely Room. There will be a mandatory parent meeting at 7:30. The sailing program is open to children and grandchildren of Life and Regular members. To participate, children must be eight years old by August 31, 2014. You must be present at the meeting in order for your child to sail.

The sailing program begins on July 1st and will run for 7 weeks, ending with Awards Night on August 15th. The cost of the program is $350 & $125 in fundraiser raffle tickets per child due the night of signups. We anticipate three raffle ticket prizes - $300, $200, & $100 with the three winners drawn in July at Family Day.

In addition to the N-10 fleet, lessons will be offered for our 420 fleet. The schedules for both fleets will be discussed at the parent meeting.

Adult sailing will be offered this year if there is enough interest. Sign-up will be held on Wednesday May 7th from 6-7:30p.m. in the Wisely Room. The cost for the 5 week program will be $125 and classes will be held once per week on Mondays. We anticipate classes beginning on July 8th.

Finally, we are planning to bring back a full day program for our younger sailors. We need at least 10 enrolled children in order to run this program, and each family would be required to volunteer for two days during the summer. The cost for this program will be an additional $100. More information will be available at sign up night.

We are looking forward to another great sailing season!
