Education Notes:  Classes Filling.  Laser Clinic!

The morning section of the Beginner Class is quickly SELLING OUT for Session D. There are spaces in the afternoon for that session, as well as spots available in the morning in other sessions.  Many of the afternoon classes have a lower hourly rate and offer a better student/teacher ratio.

The Laser Clinic will be held Thursday and Friday, July 6 & 7.  This is a great opportunity for both youth and adults to be coached by Bobby Collins.  Please register by June 27 so that we can make staffing decisions.

Registration closes for all classes on Sunday at noon, the day before classes begin; however, early registration is always appreciated as it helps us plan our staffing needs. Classes will be held on the Fourth of July.  Any time your student will not attend class, please notify Matt Andersen, Club Director at director@eyc.org

Opti Racing, Intro to Lasers, Powerboat Skills, Adventure Sailing, Women’s Sailing, Beginner Full Day, and of course, Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced and Racing.  With all these offerings plus private lessons, there is something for everyone at the EYC!  Plan now to get out on the water in 2017.  Details can be found at www.eyc.org/lessons, or feel free to look for any of the staff or Education Chair, Liz Gheorghita, at the Opening Social.

 

Phew!  That’s all for this week.
