Tiburon’s Corinthian Yacht Club is hosting its 38th Women’s Sailing Seminar next month. The annual event is organized by the Corinthian Women’s Group and is scheduled for the weekend of June 11 and 12. Participants can expect an array of on-the-water and shore-based classes designed for beginner to experienced women sailors throughout the Bay Area.
Day 1 covers preparing to sail, boat terminology, how sailboats work, reading the wind, points of sail, and some knots. Day 2 adds rules of the road, basic navigation, tides and weather, sail trim and more. Both afternoons are spent on the Bay, sailing in small groups, so students get a chance to put their new knowledge to work.
“It’s a real joy to share this sport with new and experienced women sailors; [I’m] glad the event has returned. I look forward to instructing and sharing my Bay and ocean sailing skills,” said CYC Staff Commodore Timothy Ballard.
The Women’s Sailing Seminar is designed to promote women’s sailing, and has given many women their start in the sport. It is open to yacht club member and non-member women, and is taught by “very patient and experienced” Bay and ocean sailors.
The cost is $395 and registrations are required by June 1, 2022. For more details about the event and to register, visit www.cyc.org/WSS or call (415) 435-4771.
