Skipjacks is run by the members of the Columbia Yacht Club and is a social introduction to sailing which takes place over the course of seven weeks.
Member captains perform the on-the-water instruction on their own boats. The class sizes are large which allows students to meet many boat captains and students. It’s a tremendously fun program and helps people get comfortable on boats and learn the basics of our wonderful sport. Lifelong relationships begin here. Many Skipjacks become cruising and/or racing crew with the captains they meet on Skipjacks.
2021 Dates are TBD: Tuesdays at 6:30 PM
Two Classroom Sessions, On the Water Sessions and Graduation Party, are all TBD and will be announced by December 2020
