Enrichment Programming for Summer 2021

With COVID-19 still a concern when bringing people together‚ MCSC will be operating under the same restrictions as Summer 2020‚ including limiting the number of people in boats. Despite this restriction‚ we would also like to offer Enrichment programming in Summer 2021‚ including Spinnaker Club Saturdays and Racing Sundays.

In order to make these programs safe‚ we are instituting a registration process for Enrichment programming‚ which will be in effect through 2021. There is no perfect process to make registration fair‚ but we are going to make it as fair as possible—and we hope that you recognize that this process is temporary and an effort to offer more MCSC programming during another pandemic summer. If you feel as if this process is not for you‚ we recommend that you not sign up for Enrichment Programming for this summer. If you have already paid for 2021 Enrichment‚ you can transfer your enrollment to 2022‚ when we hope we can return to the less restrictive program that we miss from before-COVID times.

2021 Enrichment Registration Process
Register will be through SignUpGenius. You will receive the link after signing up for Enrichment programming.

2021 Sign Up rules:
•You can register for up to 10 sessions total (at this time).
•You register in the section that is applicable to your rating.
•Registration for a session ends the day before: Friday by 5 pm for Saturday sailing‚ and Saturday by Noon for Sunday Racing.
•If there aren’t enough Ensigns‚ skippers will be put on boats that they are qualified to sail.
•For Sunday racing: please note when you sign up if you have been Race Skipper certified by MCSC.
•Our priority in matching people will be to have qualified skippers on every boat. We cannot guarantee particular people sailing with other people. Enrichment programming is meant to be an additional teaching tool; Open Sailing is always available for sailing with a particular crew!
•Cancelled sailing due to wind‚ weather‚ or other concerns does not change the amount of times you can register. We *do*anticipate opening additional spaces later in the summer‚ once we see how this system works.

The Sailing Center’s Enrichment Program is comprised of two programs: Spinnaker Club on Saturday morning and Sunday Racing‚ whether and pandemics allowing. These weekend programs are designed to make it easy for you to get on the water and practice sailing maneuvers‚ 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 match qualified skippers with crew to ensure that everyone goes sailing with an experienced skipper aboard. You can sail Ensigns‚ Solings‚ J24s‚ and even get aboard Misty or Reliance‚ the Sailing Center’s cruising boats.

Spinnaker Club
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. It’s a great way to meet other members‚ too!
Dates: Saturdays‚ 9:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
(No Spinnaker Club during regattas and some special events)

Sunday Racing
No racing experience necessary! Sunday Racing offers sailors the opportunity to learn and compete in a multitude of wind conditions on different MCSC boats. Learn as crew and gain confidence in boat handling‚ sail trim and rules of the road. ***There must be ONE certified racing skipper per boat.
Dates: Sundays‚ 9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
(No Sunday Racing during regattas and some special events)
