Instructional Sailing Lessons

This instructional program is designed to teach the basics of sailing to novices. The Recreation Department provides qualified instructors who teach the basics of sailing - including: the parts of the sail boat, knotting techniques, rigging, docking, mooring procedures, and basic nautical terms. Sailors use Cape Cod Knock-abouts each day. “Chalk Talk” takes place on land during inclement weather when sailing is not recommended. This is a great program for families, adults, and individual children.
Class Size is limited to 32 sailors per session.

Racing Program

The Yarmouth Recreation Sailing Center runs a full instructional RACING program with two progressive levels:
Level I: a program for sailors that have
sailing experience but now want
to develop their racing skills
Level II: a program offered only to those
sailors who have successfully
completed the Level I racing
program or have had Regatta
Racing experience.

Separate registration is required because lessons for the racing program are taught separately from the instructional program. “Chalk Talks” will be run on land in inclement weather when sailing is not recommended. Lasers, Vanguard 420’s, and Cape Cod Knock-abouts will be utilized. The course will cover setting spinnakers, trapeezing, and match and team racing against other programs on Cape Cod.

Class size is limited.
