The Basic Sailing Course offers  classroom training with experienced sailors and provides a solid foundation of sailing basics.

Upon completion of the three classes, students may sign up to sail with SSYC skippers in order to practice what they’ve learned.  These classes provide a good introduction to sailing, especially for those who’ve never been on a sailboat or have minimal experience.  Plus, it’s a great opportunity to get out on the water on a sailboat!

The  $60 registration fee includes textbook, course notes, three classes and  on-the-water practice sails. After class  completion, students attend a Seattle Singles Yacht Club meeting to sign up for the practice sailing trips. SSYC experienced skippers will take students on their boats and show them how to apply what was learned in class.  After successful completion, students receive a certificate of class completion.
