Crow's Nest Sailing Program
MHYC's Crow's Nest Sailing Program is designed to teach kids ages 7 to 16 the joy of boating and water safety skills for life. Spend your summer days outside on Lake Erie, sailing, kayaking, paddleboarding, powerboating, playing at our beaches, swimming in the pool and enjoying the beautiful MHYC clubhouse and grounds. Our more competitive sailors also race on the Opti Race Team or the Advanced Race Team. Crow's Nest is open to members of the Club and the community, and we welcome beginners of ALL AGES. We may have 5 Fleets, but this is 1 Family.
