Fundamental skills development is the core attribute of any sailor. Whether it is 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 the perfect introduction to a broad-based sailor skillset 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.

CCYC's Adult Sailing School continues your education with a 4 week "on the water" instruction in the school's Rhodes 19 keelboats and is taught by our own US Sailing certified instructors. 

And don't forget about the kids!  CCYC's Junior Sailing aims to encourage and develop the sailing and water-related skills of our children (ages 7 to 18) through instructional and peer-to-peer interaction in a structured yet fun and social educational environment. Junior Fleet was re-established in 1996 to develop knowledgeable youth sailors and instill in them a love of the sport of boating that will serve as a foundation for their future.

Throughout the season CCYC also sponsors a variety of  Seminars aimed at improving boater safety and increasing awareness on specific topics.
