Description: “Learn to RACE” is for young sailors who are ready to move beyond basic sailing by learning early racing skills, sailing terms, knots, safety, and an introduction to the rules of racing. Sailors in this class should know how to rig their own boat, basic sailing skills and terminology including sailing upwind and downwind, tacking and jibing. There will be drills, short races, plus a mix of shore sessions covering rigging, race course descriptions, boat handling, sail trim, and racing flags/signals. But don’t worry – we will still have fun too!

Prerequisites:  Must be able to demonstrate all skills taught in Learn to Sail class. Must be able to swim without a life jacket and be comfortable in and around LAKE water.  A swimming and treading water test will be performed on the first day of class. If the student does not pass the test, they will not be allowed to participate.  Basic boat handling skills required.

Receipt of payment and liability waiver form is required to be officially registered for class.  Mail checks, made out to AYC and signed liability form to:
