Learn to Sail with the Nevada Yacht Club!
Have you have ever wanted to learn more about sailing and sailboats? Then this is the place to start! Our two-day course is for the absolute beginner and for the sailor who just needs a refresher course. Instruction takes place both in the classroom and on the water utilizing club members' mono hull sailboats. You will learn boat safety, points of sail, parts of the boat, sail trim, steering, weather/wind, and so much more. The course is held at The Lake Mead Marina inside the Boathouse Restaurant. Included in your registration fee is the "Basic Keelboat" textbook, a Nevada Yacht Club Sail Training T-Shirt, and a completion certificate. Lunch is also available for purchase at a special price!
Must be 13 years of age to participate. Participants under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Classroom training will be held rain or shine (wind or no wind). The Nevada Yacht Club Fleet Captain may cancel on-the-water activities if hazardous weather conditions exist. If both days of on-water activities are cancelled due to hazardous weather, the Nevada Yacht Club will attempt to schedule a single make-up day, but a make-up day is not guaranteed. Cancelations will incur a $10 fee per canceled registrant. Cancelations must be received by August 31, 2023 to be eligible for a refund.
