Making sailing accessible for all ages!
Don't let our name fool you - we specialize in teaching adults how to sail, too!
Over the past several years, SYSC has made growing Adult Classes a focus in order to improve and expand the experience we provide on the Lakefront. This summer, we added a Level 3 class - Wednesday Night Racing. This class, taught by SEAS Staff Member Juju Senfft, opened up a pathway for our adult sailors who have taken both our Level 1 and Level 2 courses and are ready to try their hand at the next level - racing. Now spanning four weeknights, our adult classes offer a unique experience for young professionals, parents, students and retirees alike. Whether you are seeking out a new hobby or sport, looking to meet new people or simply enjoy the beautiful Lakefront, these are the classes for you. Packaged with a free summer membership to the Sheboygan Yacht Club, there's no doubt these lessons are the best value in town.
After an extremely successful summer, we had enough demand to extend these classes well into the fall. Doing so provided us with an opportunity to explore sailing in the dark, new navigational challenges, how to dress warmly on a sailboat and do more work with sail trim and boat handling than ever before. Where our regularly-scheduled summer adult classes are run using Sonars, our Fall Extension classes were run on SYSC's two J24s, The Next Wave and Elli. Hopping on these slightly bigger boats gave students an opportunity to learn new a new boat, widening their skill set and introducing them to more advanced keelboat sailing.
We hope to roll our momentum directly into full adult courses next year, so grab a few friends and register today to reserve your spot!
A special shout-out to our adult instructors who make the magic happen -- without them, our programming for adults could never possibly be as fun and productive. Thank you to Steve, Mark, Caiti, Jake, Andrew, Hanks and John for spending so much time and effort with us!
