About the Event
This is the perfect opportunity for you to get out on the water! Students in this class will learn water safety, sailing terminology, names, and functions of boat parts, points of sail, steering, boat handling skills, sail trim, tacking, jibing, reaching, and both upwind and downwind sailing. Students may sail alone, in pairs, or with an instructor on Butterfly, Laser, or JY15 sailboats. Instruction is tailored to each student’s skill level or knowledge.
First-time sailors are required to complete two sessions of Learning & Orientation. Upon completion of the Orientation, repeat and returning sailors may purchase as many additional sessions as they wish on a per-evening basis. Instruction is continually adjusted as sailors become more experienced.
Sailors should meet in the MYC Sailing School classroom. The MYC Sailing School is located in the building to the north of the Muskegon Yacht Club. Sailors will need to sign a Liability Waiver and Emergency Treatment Authorization form as well as a Concussion Awareness form prior to the student starting camp.
Students should dress comfortably in a bathing suit under their clothing and a life vest. Students should bring their own water bottle and sunscreen. Sharing will not be permitted due to Covid safety protocols. Other helpful items are a hat and sunglasses with a strap.
