If you would like to volunteer to help with our sail team or have any suggestions please feel free to email me at Chrisandblakebrown@yahoo.com. We can provide transportation to regattas if notice is given.
If any student is caught drinking alcohol or consuming drugs during a regatta event the team will be disqualified and the student will be removed from the team.
We will allow any new kids that are interested in coming to one practice to see if it interests them. They can do so on any Wed. at 4:15. If they want to continue after the first practice, a waiver must be signed and fees paid.
Sailing Club practices are weekly on Mondays and Wednesdays, 4 pm to dusk, and some Saturdays, 12 to 4 pm, if the coach think it is necessary and weather is good. Assemble at the pergola, near the boats. Please show up to practice in appropriate boating attire and shoes. We are paying our coach for these classes - please come prepared to participate and respect your coach. If the weather is bad, we'll meet under the club. If it's horrible, we'll meet in the club, unless a club event is happening, in which case practice will be cancelled. Call Coach to confirm.
Notarized forms are required before you can get on the water.
