Learn to Sail Course Now Available!

Published 5:36pm on 3 Jun 2022

Quannapowitt Yacht Club offers a 5-week sailing program designed to give students the basics of sailing in a fun, supportive and safe environment. The program is limited to 8 students, to ensure each student receives plenty of one-on-guidance on the water. Each weekly session is two hours long, with a maximum of two students per boat.

Throughout the five week program, QYC instructors will cover the fundamentals of sailing including:

  • Points of sail and important terminology
  • Parts of the boat & rigging
  • Tacking and jibing
  • Basic navigation and sail shape control
  • Pulling away from the dock; returning to the dock

This is the perfect experience for beginner sailors who want to see if sailing is right for them, or simply try a new activity and learn a new skill.

Our Learn to Sail course is taught on a variety of boats that may include Mercurys, Flying Scots, and Day Sailers.

Lessons are recommended for ages 14 and up. Younger sailors may participate in the program with a parent.

2022 Schedule:

Monday evenings, 6pm - 8pm

June 13, June 20, June 27, July 11, July 18 (No class July 4)
