SYC MEMBER DROP IN - by donation
Hop into a dinghy with your friend, spouse, kids or bubble member. We'll teach you all the basics of sailing so you can get out onto the sound on your own. Used to be a dinghy sailor, come show us what you've got. Have a kid in sailing school, let them show you a thing or two!
The goal is to create a space for members to come and enjoy sailing; beer on the dock, sailing a boat, come hang out. We will have two instructors available to facilitate lessons, improve skills or even a few fun races.
We hope to see you there!
