Adult Sailing Lessons

Group Lessons

IYC typically offers adult sailing lessons during four weeks of the summer. Lessons will be held twice weekly (Tuesdays and Thursdays) beginning in July.  

Adults will receive a US Sailing Learn to Sail ebook, along with instruction from our certified sailing instructors.  You can expect to learn the anatomy of a sailboat, how to rig / de-rig, various points of sail both up and downwind, and hopefully enjoy the stunning scenery and breezes of Cayuga Lake.  The cost is $275 for members and $350 for non-members.

Session 1 - July 12, 14 and July 19, 21    5:30 to 7:30PM

Session 2 - July 26, 28 and August 2, 4   5:30 to 7:30 PM

Each session will be limited to 10 sailors. This is a hands on camp where you will be rigging and actively sailing a small two person sailboat. You will be required to move about the boat while underway. You will be wading out into the water and getting wet, so bring wading shoes and appropriate clothing.
