Adult Sailing School

Ever thought of being on the waters of Lake Michigan, lazily enjoying the sights of the shoreline or sharing the excitement of racing with other boats? Here is your chance to learn to sail and skipper a sailboat. CCYC’s 4 week Adult Sailing School will teach you to sail with hands-on experience out of Montrose Harbor.

US Sailing Certified Instructors will teach you (to):
- Skipper and direct a boat
- Steer by the wind
- Tack and Jibe
- Set sails
- Leave and Return to a dock
- Right of Way rules
- Perform Man Overboard drills
- Marine Terminology

(2) 4 Week Sessions will be offered Beginning in June, and July
JUNE Session :
Tuesday evenings June 6th -  June 27th / 5pm to 9pm   OR
Saturday mornings June 3rd  - June 24th / 9:30am to 1:30pm

JULY Session :
Tuesday evenings July 11th - August 1st  /  5pm to 9pm OR

Our instructors love sailing and sharing their experience with you.
The class is taught in the school’s Rhodes 19 sailboats. The Rhodes is a nineteen foot keelboat that makes an excellent trainer.  It is small enough to give you the feel of a boat and big enough for a safe, comfortable and FUN experience.

The cost is $250 for CCYC members or Crew School graduates, $350 for non-members.

The team has set up the CCYC Sailing School as a 501(c) (3) charity. Although they have received several donations that have enabled them to purchase their first boat, they are still looking for donations to help refit the boat and get the school launched. At this time they are unable to take equipment donations, but any cash would be greatly appreciated. Donors will receive a letter thanking them for their contribution suitable for use at tax time. As you plan your year-end gift giving, please consider the CCYC Sailing School in your plans.

Checks should be made payable to CCYC and sent to the following address:
