The River Cities Community Sailing Program has organized a Free Learn-to-Sail Clinic for the past 17 years.  This year’s Free Learn-to-Sail Clinic is Saturday, June 8, at Cox Park.

Read on...

There will be two clinics for youth 9 to 17 years old—one is from 1:00 to 3:00 and the other is from 3:00 to 5:00. The format of each youth clinic is to spend an hour on land talking about parts of a boat, nautical terms, how a sailboat uses the wind to move through the water and how to tie a few common knots. After that, the youngsters board boats provided by the Derby City Sailing Club and go sailing (assuming there’s wind) for about an hour. (If there’s no wind, they motor sail.)

There will also be an adult clinic that runs from 1:00 to 4:00. Its format is similar but the adults are on land for two hours going over much the same material and then they go sailing once the kids comes back.

Registration for the 1 to 3 youth clinic and the 1 to 4 adult clinic starts at 12:30. Registration for the second youth clinic begins at 2:30.

Here is the week’s schedule at LSC.
