Fundamental skills development is the core attribute of any sailor. Whether its learning to read the wind and the waves, or how to improve sail trim, education and continuing education are often necessary to increase the fun and improve safety out on the water. Attaining and maintaining these valuable skills help contribute to a life-long love of the sport.

CCYC's Crew School serves as a perfect introduction to a broad-based sailor skill set that will help those interested in racing find a boat to crew on, or give base-line knowledge to those more interested in cruising. The focus is on understanding teamwork, strategy, and execution, and how all of these lead to safety and success on the water.

Throughout the season CCYC also sponsors more general education initiatives aimed at improving boater safety and increasing awareness on specific topics.
