MYC Adventure Sailing

Adventure Sailing is a program designed to teach sailing from the very beginner to club racer. The kids will learn rigging, launching, landing, parts of the boat, knots, rules of the road and more. We will strive to teach our young members how to get on the water and sail a proper course in all directions and get back safely. The goal is to have fun and learn the sport of sailing.

As with any program, progress is gained from past lessons and practice. This program is designed to be attended every weekend. We ask that participants be available for the entire session so that we may build from the previous weeks activities. Our schedule is set to start Saturday, June 17 and run through Saturday, August 5. (We will take a break for Culver Lake Fest, July 15.)

We will use MYC’s O’pen Bics and Opti’s as our learning platform however if any sailor has a Sunfish or another small one design boat, you are more than welcome to use it. If we have enough Sunfish we will have a separate group geared more towards learning to race.

  • Any child ages 8-14 prior to May 1st of the membership year is eligible to participate.
  • Must be active members, either as a family or junior (junior $25)
  • In the interest of safety, all participants must have and wear their own approved and properly fitting PFD(Personal Floatation Device).
  • All members are to meet at the Culver Town Park east pavilion, activities will start promptly at 9:00am, sessions will run till 11:30.
  • A Parent is required to stay during each session.
