Overnight Camp:
June 5th-8th

We are looking forward to the 2018 TCYC Sailing Camp. We promise many water and land activities and great sailing instruction. Camp Check In will be at 9:00 am on Tuesday, June 5th, 2018 with camp starting thereafter. Camp will end at 5:00 pm on Friday, June 8th with a short “awards celebration” for the campers and the parents and a family dinner to follow.
Overnight TCYC Sailing Camp is open to Member’s children and grandchildren who are at least 8 years old and under 15 on the first day of camp.

We have designed camp to serve sailors of all levels. Sailors will have the opportunity to sail several different types of boats. Some very exciting boats will be added as a surprise! Sailors will be learning appropriate skills with their friends. Sailors with less experience will be learning where the wind is coming and what that means for them as a member of a team on a boat. Sailors with more experience will be learning racing techniques and some of the more technical aspects of sailing.The sailing instructors and counselors will place your child in the appropriate group. As the campers progress, they may be moved from one level to the next.

Campers will bunk in the Club cabanas and the Junior Club House with at least two counselors in each “cabin.” Sailing Camp is an “away” camp with a full day and evening of activities. Campers are expected to participate fully in all camp activities, including sailing and other water sports, chalk talks, skit night, games and other organized activities.

Junior Summer Sailing:
June 9th- Aug.31st Wed-Fri.  in
Optis/ Lasers/ 420s/ Sunfish/ windsurfers.

We are looking forward to the 2018 summer season. The season will start June 9th and go until August 31st. We may make some adjustments to the schedule in August to account for attendance and wind. Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends will include lots of sailing, but will not have normal Summer Sailing classes. Junior Sailing Classes are open to members and members’ guests who have graduated from 1st grade.

Please see the information below about our exciting Sailing Passes for Early Registrants and information on discounts. When registering you will choose if your sailor will be in the Learn to Sail class, ready to explore what sailing has to offer by signing up for the Epic Sailing Pass, or if your sailor wants to come only a few days during the summer. Attached is more information about schedules and calendars and class descriptions.

Below you will find a weekly schedule for the different sailing classes. This is to help get sailors excited to come for their favorite class and to help them come mentally and physically prepared. I will speak with the coaches to find what classes are appropriate for your sailor. The schedule might change when attendance dictates it.

The goal of the program is to provide a learning environment for all of the students to be able to learn and progress. We will be introducing some new approaches to learning sailing and new types of boats as well. We want to get as many members involved in junior sailing as possible.

To allow for the coaches to plan better for your sailor we have a new policy. You must contact Solvig Sayre in in advance (9am two days prior to the class at the latest) to let her know your sailor will be there to sail. If you end up not coming you will be charged $20 and if you did not provide the coaches with the prescribed time to prepare you will be charged an additional $20.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. We are looking forward to having your sailors this summer.
