Summer Classes are Filling at EYC

Friday, May 5th, 2017

April showers bring May flowers . . . and thoughts of summer! Now is the time to have a look at the 2017 Lesson Schedule and see what’s on offer. We have a wide variety of classes from the traditional two week classes to a Beginner class which meets all day for one week. The popular Women’s Class is back and will be offered throughout the summer. Adventure Sailing is always a great option for visiting friends and relatives to take together. Powerboat Skills can help both youngsters and adults learn how to confidently handle a powerboat. Intro to Lasers and Opti Racing are great options for younger sailors eager to improve on the race course. Last, but not least, Bobby Collins will be leading the Laser Clinic on July 6 & 7. It is open to youth and adults. Please visit www.eyc.org/lessons for many details and a link to registration.

As always, feel free to contact education@eyc.org with any questions. We look forward to seeing you soon!

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.
