This program develops knowledgeable and capable adult sailors and instills in them a passion for the sport of sailing, which will lay the foundation for the future of the Oceanside Yacht Club and the sport of sailing.

The 2-day course consists of both classroom and “on-the-water” components that allow the student to learn the basics of sailing and safe seamanship. Instruction is on board a 23 foot Sonar keelboat.

Students will pilot the keelboat through various points of sail. They will learn how to trim the sail for maximum efficiency for a given wind speed and wind angle and how to maneuver the boat through a preset course.

OYC’s Learn to Sail Program places emphasis on having fun while learning the principles of sailing. The course includes a student study manual.

To enroll, complete and return the LTS registration forms with payment to the OYC office.
