Enrollment. Advance online enrollment is required for group lessons. For private lessons, online enrollment is not available; instead, call the EYC at (920) 854-7107 during the summer, or stop by the EYC during open hours to make an appointment. **ATTENTION** In order to benefit from current season lesson pricing, registration must be completed by 2 pm on the Friday, two weeks before the start of the class.  After that deadline passes, registration is still possible, but each class will cost an additional $25.00. If a student has registered for a class early but needs to change classes due to promotion inside the two-week limit, the $25.00 fee will be waived. We anticipate more classes than usual filling this summer. To secure your preferred session and current season pricing, please register early

EYC Membership Required. Each student must be an EYC member in good standing. Students under the age of 25 must belong to the EYC within a family membership or as a student member. Students 25 and older must have a membership in one of the following categories — Single, Young Adult, Family, or Senior. Please note–Student memberships are no longer available for purchase through lesson registration. They must be purchased through Club Express. Please contact Membership Volunteer Sara Knight at [email protected] for more information.

Scholarships. Scholarships funded by the Aaron R Moore Scholarship Fund are available to students ages 7-16 who are year-round residents of Door County and who would not be able to enroll but for this fund. Students granted scholarships can enroll in any EYC sailing session. The scholarship process is simple and confidential. Parents seeking scholarships should contact the EYC Scholarship Chair at [email protected] prior to membership and lesson enrollment. Application for a scholarship should be made as soon as possible and prior to July 1.

Safety. Safety is the EYC’s number one priority. All EYC instructors undergo safety training as part of their US Sailing Level 1 Small Boat Instructor course, and all EYC staff take part in annual pre-season in-house safety training. The EYC strictly enforces its PFD rule for instructors and students engaged in sailing lessons. Safety concepts and techniques are integrated at every level of the EYC’s sailing instruction program. All EYC students must know how to swim and must be comfortable swimming alone, in deep water, and in open water.
