Sailing Program News – 2023
The Harraseeket Yacht Club Youth Sailing Program is looking forward to the 2023 season.
HYC Members – Registration is open for you January 30. Please log into your member section of the HYC website to be directed to the Sailing Registration Page. Public Registration Opening February 13, 2023
We are excited to announce that we have made a few changes to the program to better suit the needs of our youth sailors.
- Our schedule will be changed to primarily half day programming with two week sessions. We are aiming to send our beginner sailors out in the mornings in lower wind conditions to build basic skills and confidence, our intermediate-advanced classes will maximize their time in the afternoon when wind conditions are consistently more favorable.
- Our Introductory Guppies classes will now be three days a week in a small class format. Classes will be capped at 8 sailors, with two senior coaches and one junior instructor. We are keeping the class size small to maximize safety, and allow for more individual time. We are looking to build up the confidence of your youth sailor!
- We are introducing a new “Sonar Cruising” class in the afternoons, for highly motivated sailors from the morning Mates or Recruits classes to be able to continue their sailing instruction for a full day, or for older sailors who want to focus on “cruising” rather than racing.
Please stay tuned to the Sailing Program page for updates, course descriptions, and a link to register.
We look forward to coaching your sailors in 2023!
