The Sailing Center’s Enrichment Program is comprised of two programs: Spinnaker Club on Saturday morning and Sunday Racing. These weekend programs are designed to make it easy for you to get on the water and practice sailing maneuvers‚ be evaluated for a light or medium air rating‚ go racing or simply get experience aboard an Ensign or another boat you have not yet tried.
It’s also a great way to meet other members and go sailing without having to find crew. MCSC staff will assist matching qualified skippers with crew to ensure that‚ if possible‚ everyone goes sailing with an experienced skipper aboard. You can sail Ensigns‚ Solings‚ J24s‚ 420s and even get aboard Misty‚ the Sailing Center’s C & C 27.
One of the most popular programs at MCSC! Get the on-the-water practice time you need to improve your skills while sailing in a social‚ non-competitive environment on a variety of boats with qualified skippers. Also great as a make-up session if you miss a class during the week. You can be evaluated for a Light or Medium Air rating if wind conditions allow. It’s a great way to meet other members‚ too!
