About the Program
As a Yacht Club primarily made up of sailors, ABYC knows that laying the right foundation will set you up to become a lifelong sailor. Working with the Tempest Fleet, ABYC has developed a premier teaching program that is designed to make our students successful. Students will have four full days of instructional time, including about 10 hours of private, one-on-one sailing with their instructor on the water. This class is open to all ABYC Members as well as non-member parties that have an ABYC Member sponsoring them.
