Portland Yacht Club is pleased to offer sailing lessons for adults age 21 and over.

Registrations for PYC members and parents of Junior Sailors have priority until May 31. Beginning June 1, all registrations will be processed in the order in which they were received.

Participants at all levels of sailing are welcome.

Description of the various courses are found on our website. If you have not yet reviewed the information on our web site, please go to

Everyone in the class sails together on a J/24 keelboat, or another adult-size boat, with the instructor on board as well. Most of the classes are taught by experienced PYC members, who are graciously volunteering their time.

This year the classes are 2 days a week for two weeks. If a class is cancelled due to weather, we will reschedule as soon as possible.

Within the Women’s programs, you may select either #1 or #2. Or if you are available for both, mark one as 1st Choice and the other as 2nd Choice.

All proceeds will be reinvested in the PYC Junior Sailing program.

All programs begin at 5:30 PM and end at 8:00 PM.

Select one program as your first choice. CLICK THE BOX NEXT TO THE NAME OF THE PROGRAM, then click the “1st Choice” box to the right.

You may also make a second choice. Click the box next to the name of the program, then click the “2nd Choice” box to the right.

Note: Women may choose a Coed Program as either 1st or 2nd choice.

NOTE: We are unable to pro-rate for missed classes. We hope to see you at all, or most, of the classes. The J/24 keelboats require many hands, so attendance is important for smooth sailing.
