Women's Sailing Clinic (ages 18+)
November 24, 2019

The Women's Sailing Clinic is designed to specifically give adult women, of all ages and skill levels, the opportunity to learn to sail, or to refine previous sailing skills, at the Jetties Sailing Center. Focus is placed on teaching and reviewing the fundamentals, as well as introducing students to the basics of racing. Key goals of the class include building confidence and ensuring that students are comfortable on the water. Classes are taught primarily in Rhodes 19s or Marshall 15s with an instructor and 2-3 students on board. In the case of inclement weather there will be a "chalk-talk" and on-land instruction will still take place.

Women's clinic is offered on Tuesday evenings from 5:30pm - 7:30pm (Please note that this day of the week, and time, is subject to change in 2021). This clinic will offer both beginner and intermediate/beginner racing instruction. At times, the group will be split into two groups both off the water and on. Lesson plans and water drills will be oriented towards introductory sailing and racing concepts - although will always be tailored to the abilities of the students.

Members of the Jetties Sailing Center (and the Westmoor Club) are eligible to receive a 25% discount off the cost of the clinic. If you are not yet a member, you may join as an NCS Jetties Sailing Center member within the registration, otherwise the fee for women's clinic is $65 per clinic. Should you need to cancel your enrollment for a clinic, you must do so at least 24hrs before the clinic is scheduled to take place. If you do not cancel and do not attend the clinic, you will still be responsible for payment. There are no refunds issued due to inclement weather. We ask that you be sure to include your cell phone information during registration, so that we may contact you in case of inclement weather. Please note: Registration will open on our Jetties Sailing Center booking software, not through our youth program registration software.
