The club teaches
both on and off the water sailing classes through Johnson County Parks
and Recreation District. (www.JCPRD.com) - to our knowledge, one of the
few, if not only sailing programs in the KC area for adults that features both class
room and on the water sailing lessons.
The Johnson County Sailing Society was started in 1969 by some avid, but low key racers to promote the sport of sailing.
In addition to Saturday lessons through most of the Spring and Summer months, The club features mixed fleet racing on Sundays from all dinghy classes with a concentration in Sunfish and Sweet 16s. But there are also Viking, Coronado, Dolphin, Albacore, Snipe, even a sailboard or two.(Portsmouth handicaps are used to keep the boats reasonably equal) If you are looking for an
opportunity to experience the thrill of recreational sailing, racing or
friendship with folks who share your interest in sailing - this Club
might be a good fit for you.
Join us on most any non holiday Sunday for racing or check our calendar at our Yahoo Group site for other dates when we get together as sailors to experience the thrill of the tiller handle, wind and water
. Join or visit our mailing list/Yahoo Group at:
