Adult Classes

Embark on a sailing adventure on Mill Creek with YSV’s keelboat fleet. These boats are safe and responsive and have a keel, these boats are more stable and do not capsize. Tailored for first-time sailors or those seeking to refresh their skills, our courses offer a comprehensive learning experience. Our highly qualified instructors will guide you through the fundamentals, covering basic nomenclature, safety procedures, knot tying, rigging, steering techniques, sail dynamics, and the rules of navigation. This immersive 10-hour program is thoughtfully structured across five classes, providing ample time for skill acquisition and practice over two weeks.
