EYC Sail School is a week-long, overnight camp dedicated to having fun and learning how to sail. Started more than 40 years ago, Sail School is an all-volunteer effort designed to provide sailing know-how to youngsters (and a few oldsters). It’s a week of fun and friendship for our sailing family.
Costs are kept low because members generously volunteer their time and expertise by teaching classes, leading evening activities, and cooking up a tasty breakfast, lunch, and dinner each day.
The next Sail School happens June 24-29, 2018. Early Bird Registration begins March 1.
Camp fees cover instruction, use of class boat (student must provide own Laser for all Laser classes), all meals, snacks, T-shirt, evening activities, and on-site camping.
Sail School is open to EYC members and a limited number of guests. Members are active EYC members and their partners, children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and siblings who are at least 10 years old. Guests are those who are not related to members as defined above.

Take A Sail School Student Sailing
On Thursday evening during Sail School, students have the opportunity to participate in the club’s Thursday night racing! Students of all ages ( ages 12 to adult) may choose to ride on a racing boat, the race committee or rescue boat, or sail on a boat cruising the lake taking it all in. Students participating in this opportunity represent all skill levels and receive a 30-minute orientation on Thursday morning. Stories of the adventure are shared on Friday.
