Skipjacks

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Skipjacks will be postponed to 2021

Active students will be refunded shortly. If you have additional questions, please email skipjacks@colyc.org

 

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.
