The 2020 LCYC Junior Sailing Program - Lessons
The LCYC Board of Governors has decided that the ongoing pandemic has made it too risky to run the Junior Sailing program this summer. Although the Governor is easing up some of the restrictions, we don't believe that we can run the traditional program in a manner to keep both the participants and club members safe. With most camps being canceled this summer, we understand that it will be hard on the kids and the parents. If you have requested a full refund, we are in the process of issuing these refunds back to your credit cards.
But all is not lost! We will be offering small group lessons to keep the junior sailors interested in sailing and help them hone their sailing skills. These lessons will be taught by two returning instructors, Jack Merrill and Emma Hawko. They will be teaching 3-hour sessions twice a day (9a-12p and 1p-4p) from June 29th to August 7th. These sessions will be limited 2 students per instructors. We ask that the 2 students be part of the same “family group”. A family group includes members of the same family or another family with whom you have be socially isolating. Although this is under the Junior Sailing program, the instructors would be happy to provide instruction to anyone that wants to improve their sailing skills. These lessons are open to members and non-members.
The fees for the private lessons are $75 for a 3-hour session for the first student and $30 for each additional student. If you have registered previously and have not requested a refund, we will use your previous registration fees toward the private lessons. If there is an additional balance it can be paid by check at the time of the lesson. Any remaining portion of the original registration will be refunded. Please use the link below to reserve your spot.
Please complete the Waiver (see below) as part of your registration process and bring a copy to the club at the time of your lesson.
As a reminder, we will be holding virtual Thursday night race clinics. We are currently planning to have a 1/2 hour "chalk talk" followed by a 1/2 hour of virtual regattas. We are still working out the details and will send out an announcement in mid-June for these clinics. We have decided to make these clinics free of charge, so that the junior sailors can keep up their skills and camaraderie.
Thank you for your patience and let us know if you have any questions.
