All 2023 sailing classes are now completed. Thank you for your interest and for another successful season of getting our next generation of sailors started out right!
Watch our website in the spring for updates on plans for 2024 adult and youth classes.
SWYC – Youth Sailing Association provides sailing instruction to the South Whidbey community youth and adult residents and visitors.
Our sailing courses combine shore-side learning with lots of on-the-water, hands-on-the-tiller experience. In addition to sailing, students learn boating safety, basic seamanship and knot tying. The focus is on being safe, learning sailing concepts and having fun.
Courses use the US Sailing instruction guide, which is provided at the first session, and our lead instructors are US Sailing certified.
Register for classes with South Whidbey Parks & Recreation Department beginning mid-April, 2024. In person at the Whidbey Parks & Rec Building and online. If you are a South Whidbey Yacht Club member and want to receive your discount on sailing classes, you must register in person or by phone. On-line registration will not accommodate the discount.
