Our instructors love sailing and sharing their experience with you. ALL classes are taught in the school’s Rhodes 19 sailboats. The Rhodes is a nineteen foot keel boat 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:
