Our racing and lesson program is in full swing. This year there are many new interesting opportunities for lessons for sailors old and new:
Adventure Sailing for the kids + Women’s Sailing Class for Mom = A beautiful week on the water for all. This week’s Adventure Sailing classes has sailed to Eagle Bluff and hiked around the caves, kayaked and paddle boarded in the harbor, and sailed to Anderson Dock on the Optis with a visit to Anderson Store for some candy and local history. Next week, July 20-24, the kids can take Adventure Sailing in the afternoons while mothers brush up on sailing or powerboat skills at the same time in either the Women’s Sailing Class or the Powerboat Skills class.
Calling all top guns. If you are interested in racing, come out and try your hand at team racing. EYC Instructors Isak Peterson and Zac Aasen will be leading a one day Team Racing clinic on this exciting aspect of sailing on Saturday, July 25th. The clinic will be held on the EYC’s Club 420’s. It is open to anyone age 12 and up who has completed one session of Intermediate lessons.

July 18th- Rich Hall Junior Regatta. Saturday and Sunday, July 18 & 19
The Rich Hall Junior Regatta is this weekend for racers ages 12-17. The regatta is open to all boats of the Laser Radial and Club 420 (School and College Version) classes. Competitors do not have to be an EYC member, but only EYC members are eligible to sail in EYC-owned boats. No EYC Skipper’s License is required to skipper an EYC-owned Laser Radial or 420, but competitors and parents are asked to use good judgment, taking into account age, maturity, skill level and expected wind velocity and weather, in deciding whether to race or to allow their children to race.
This is another great racing opportunity for our juniors. Find a crew, find a skipper and get ready to race for a trophy this coming weekend! There are trophies for the top five places, plus the highest placing all-girl crew.
The drawing for EYC members to skipper an EYC-owned boat will take place at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 18. Skippers must be present in person to participate in the boat draw. For all other information related to the regatta, please see the Notice of Race and Sailing Instructions on the EYC’s website, www. eyc.org/racing.
