Women's Sailing

Please check back in the spring to sign up for summer 2023 sessions.


Breakwater Sailing Center is pleased to offer a summer sailing program designed specifically for women. Whether a beginner or intermediate sailor, you will safely learn to sail or build on your existing skills in a structured and supportive environment. If there is interest, we will offer an advanced class focusing on racing skills and tactics. The program will run on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, 5:30-7:30 pm, in June, July, and August. 


BEGINNER PROGRAM


Safe sailing, basic knots, rigging boats, capsize recovery, wind and weather, basic sailing maneuvers, and on-the-water practice.


JY 70 and J 24 boats will be sailed in this program.


INTERMEDIATE PROGRAM


Improving boat handling skills, safety and seamanship, weather, wind, current and tides, navigation, and how to make a sailboat move more efficiently; on the water practice.


JY 70 and J 24 boats will be sailed in this program. 


WHAT TO WEAR


Sunglasses and hat with a brim, sunscreen/lip balm, breathable, quick-drying clothing, jacket that sheds rain or spray, rubber-soled shoes that cover your toes, gloves to protect your hands, and water bottle for hydration. Also, have layers for warmth for cooler weather in the evening.


All sailors are required to wear a PFD (personal flotation device). These are available at the club – you can also bring your own.
