Adult Sailing Lessons

posted Jun 22, 2018, 9:25 AM by Ian Oldridge   [ updated Jun 22, 2018, 4:44 PM ]

Adult Sailing lessons will be offered on Saturdays beginning July 7 and running through August 25 (excluding July 28; the Triathlon closes East Shore Trail for most of the day). 

Two and a half hour classes are available mornings 9:30 am – noon, or afternoons 1:30 pm  - 4:00 pm. The cost is $30.00 per class or $70.00 for a package of three classes.  

Adults are usually proficient Sunfish sailors after 3 classes. The initial class includes a book on learning to sail, sailing terms, rigging and unrigging a Sunfish (LMYC owns eight Sunfish), and sailing including docking a Sunfish.  The second and third lesson involve rigging a Sunfish and sailing the Sunfish. 

We ask that you bring a life jacket; shoes that you don’t mind getting wet (water shoes or old tennis shoes – no flipflops); a towel and a dry change of clothes. One of the topics covered is righting a capsized Sunfish.


Please let me know which sessions will fit you schedule, and any additional questions you might have.

Want to donate that unused Sunfish?

LMYC's Junior Sailing program is in need of good quality used Sunfish. If you believe you may have the quality of boat we are looking for please contact Treasurer Perry Anderson at 973-903-7673 to arrange for an inspection.  For safety reasons our standards are quite stringent but rest assured any Sunfish donated to the club will be well used by the youngsters from the LMCC community!

Use of Club Boats

Effective Immediately

For your personal safety and in order to properly maintain the club owned Sunfish and Snipe class club-owned boats, the Lake Mohawk Yacht Club has established the following procedures which MUST be followed by all members who choose to use a club-owned boat:

1) Only LMYC members may use club-owned boats
  • Guests may not “skipper” a club boat

2) A member MUST first be “qualified” to use a club-owned boat
  • To be “qualified” a member must be tested in rigging and handling of the particular class boat
  • Contact the appropriate Fleet Captain to arrange to be tested prior to using a club-owned boat
  • Members who use a club-owned boat prior to becoming “qualified” for that class of boat will lose their privileges to use any club-owned boat

3) A “Check-Out/Check-In” log will be posted in the buoy room for use of any club-owned boats
  • Members using a club-owned boat MUST enter the user’s name, date, check-out time, check-in time and any damage or problem on the log

4) Any damage to or problem with a club-owned boat MUST be reported immediately to the appropriate Fleet Captain or Commodore
  • Members using club-owned boats are responsible for any damage to the boat or any other property or person caused by carelessness, misuse or abuse of a club-owned boat
  • Problems with club-owned boats due to ordinary wear and tear are not the responsibility of the user but must be reported so that repairs can be made and the boats properly maintained

We trust that all members will strictly adhere to the above, simple rules so that we can continue to offer the use of club-owned boats. Thank you for your cooperation.
