The Women’s Sailing Committee whose members are:

Sara Conner
met in early January to discuss creating a program designed to get our women members out on the water and feeling comfortable sailing the Ideal 18s.  Some members just want to spend an afternoon on the river, followed by dinner with friends; others want to hone their racing skills; others still want to learn how to sail.  We are working to create a program that meets all these goals including…

Monday sailing lessons
As in previous years, we will continue to offer 8 weeks of sailing lessons on Monday nights with a skilled instructor.  Monday June 7 through Monday July 26.
Women on the River
Monthly series for women from EYC, Essex Corinthian YC, Pettipaugh YC and North Cove to meet together to sail for fun.  June 9, July 7 and August 11

Women’s Racing
As in previous years, we are exploring ways for women who want to race to expand their skills either as crew or skipper.  Dates to be confirmed.




Wednesday Women's Race Series


The series is a great way to practice for the EYC Challenge to be sailed against Stonington. We will need 3 teams. Or just get a friend and make up a team and enter the series. We’ve got 8 Ideals just waiting to be sailed. We’ll have spectators on the upper deck cheering everyone on, maybe a few spectator boats.
