2016 EYC Lesson Registration Now Open!

As parts of the country begin to thaw, thoughts turn to summer.  The 2016 Lesson Schedule and Registration details are now available on the EYC website (www.eyc.org/lessons.)  The sailing season is short in Ephraim.  Memorial Day is less than three months away.  Now is an excellent time to dust off those textbooks and report cards, watch sailing videos with your student, find some local college or high school races, attend a seminar, or sail over Spring Break.

Will with Flying Scot Class

New in 2016

Beginner Full Day:  A one week, full day Beginner class will be offered once in June and once in August.  The same curriculum will be followed as in the two week class.  Students will be supervised by staff over the lunch hour at the club.  Perfect for those with limited time in Door County.

Intro to Lasers:  Students who have passed the Beginner class can now continue to improve their single-handed dinghy techniques by moving directly to the Laser using the EYC’s new Laser 4.7 rigs.  The Laser 4.7 is a smaller rig on the standard Laser hull, allowing students as light as 77 pounds to transition from Optis to Lasers. Students will learn to rig and sail a Laser in a range of wind conditions. This is an ideal opportunity to accelerate and further develop helmsmanship and boathandling skills in the largest one-design class widely raced in high school, college, Junior Olympics and Olympics.  We look forward to introducing our younger sailors to the Laser this summer!

Also new this year, student memberships must be purchased before registering for class via Club Express.  Please contact Jodi Hoyerman at jhoyerman@gmail.com for a discount code before purchasing the student membership.  Prices for classes remain the same as in 2015, so take advantage of our excellent staff and course options.  We look forward to seeing you at the club!

Any questions regarding classes or registration?  Please contact education@eyc.org.

The Ephraim Yacht Club is a family oriented non-profit organization focused on forwarding sailing education and racing to students of all ages located in the town of Ephraim, in Door County, Wisconsin on beautiful Eagle Harbor.
