A current family membership is needed to enroll family members in classes, with all past and current season dry sail and membership fees paid in full.   Note that letters A - D in class numbers do not indicate the session.  Bad weather happens - while we will offer one makeup day (for all weather cancellations only)  we do not imply or guarantee 1 for 1. 

If you are wait-listed, we will contact you - we are adjusting class limits through enrollment as club boat as students using their own boats register, which makes another club boat available and we may add more classes to accommodate wait listed children in the second morning white time slot.

DRY SAIL & STUDENT DISCOUNT:  We encourage students use their own boats in paid lessons.  We are pleased to offer a Summer 2020 Dry Sail discount of $50 per session, per boat irregardless of how many family members use it.  There is a limit of $100 per boat, the boat must be the same boat used in lessons.  Boats in dry sail used in Family Sail are not eligible and are excluded, as Family Sail is free.  Once registration for membership and class is submitted, you'll be emailed a discount code for your dry sail registration.  You will have until the day before your session begins to pay dry sail in full.  Dry Sail in short is yard storage for member boats.
