Learn to sail with members of the Smyrna Yacht Club. Sailing classes are offered in June each year. This course trains students age 10-20 to become skippers, which allows them to sail without assistance. The course includes hands on training, terminology, sailing techniques, wind, currents, safety precautions and more. Class size is limited to 15 students per class. All students must bring their lunch and drinks.
The registration fee for a one-week session is $200 for residents and $205 for non-residents and is paid at the Leisure Services Department. An instruction manual will also need to be purchased from the Smyrna Yacht Club at a cost of $20.00. All students must provide their own type III life jacket to be worn at all times while in the water.
