Adult & Family Sail Training Evening Programs

We have received multiple enquiries from parents looking for activities in which they can share/participate with their children. In 2016 we piloted a family option within our evening programs. We are pleased to offer this opportunity again in 2017. Adults, and Parents with youth 10 years of age or older, are invited to enroll in the SYC Sail Training Adult & Family Evening Programs. Youth (<19) enrolling in the program must sail with a parent.


Whether you are looking to formalize your sailing experiences, start from scratch, or just want to learn more, our instructors will be ready to teach you all the skills necessary to build confidence, or broaden your existing skills. Sailing is a sport to be enjoyed with others!

Register early, as class sizes are limited.

2017 Options


Our evening Adult & Family programs are offered in our Vibe & larger Omega dinghies. We have 8 Vibes accommodating 2 adults (or one adult & two youth) per boat, and 2 Omegas accommodating up to three adults per boat. The Omegas are recommended for larger individuals and those with agility concerns. With two adults per Vibe, the Vibe maximizes helming time.

The previously offered Adult Keelboat lessons have been discontinued with the purchase of the two large Omega boats.

All levels of sailing are welcome whether you are sailing for the first time or wanting to improve your current skills. Evening classes run from 6pm-9pm, twice weekly, Tuesday's and Thursday's. There are two 4-week sessions (8 lessons per session), July 4th - July 27th and August 1st – 24th. If you are unable to attend both evenings, please contact Derek Jackson (see STS contacts) to discuss possible accommodation.

Private Lessons


For individuals unable to commit to the Tuesday/Thursday scheduled programs, we can offer private lessons. Please contact our Sail Training Director for additional information.
