Ever thought of being on the waters of Lake Michigan, lazily enjoying the sights of the shoreline or sharing the excitement of racing with other boats?
Here is your chance to learn to sail and skipper a sailboat. CCYC’s Adult Sailing School will teach you to sail with hands-on experience out of Montrose Harbor.
In this four-week program (ideally taken after you have completed CCYC’s Crew School) US Sailing Certified Instructors will teach you to:
- Skipper and Direct a Boat
- Steer by the Wind
- Tack and Jibe
- Set sails
- Leave and return to a dock
- Follow right of way rules
- Rescue someone overboard
- Be versed in marine terminology
Each class meets for four weeks for four hours per week. Our instructors love sailing and sharing their experience with you. The class is taught in the school’s Rhodes 19 sailboats. The Rhodes 19 is a 19 foot keelboat that makes an excellent trainer. It is small enough to give you the feel of a boat and big enough for a safe, comfortable, and FUN experience.
Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?
You must be at least 18 to attend.
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
There is free street parking right outside our clubhouse at Montrose Harbor.
Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
