2019 Adult Sailing Classes

  • Everyone is happy to be back together on the first day of Waterlilies 2017!

Waterlilies 2019

Once again, this VERY popular program helping women learn to sail (and race) in a relaxed environment is on our QYC calendar for this coming summer.

Classes are scheduled for Friday mornings from 9:45 to Noon, on the following dates:

July 5th, 12th, 19th, 26th, August 2nd & Aug. 16th. We will meet on the Harbor House deck, as usual.

We request a donation from each participating Waterlilies student: QYC Members, $150 and Non-Members, $250, payable to the Quissett Yacht Club, PO Box 681, Falmouth, MA 02541. Please note “Waterlilies” in the footnote of your check.

Safety Information: Bring a Coast Guard approved life jacket, sun screen, cell phone, water and a hat. We recommend that life jackets be worn by all participants when on the water.

Thank you to all our experienced volunteer instructors who share their time, boats, and love of sailing with us; without you this program could not happen. Also, sign up if you can be a sailing instructor this summer, or ferry students to their sailboats and act as a chase boat.

We welcome “lifers” and new members alike to join in the fun. Interested students please email Ali Rodin at: alirodin@gmail.com or call 617894-0722 to reserve your spot.  Spots fill up quickly, so be sure to sign up soon. QYC Members are given priority.

Keep an eye out for Waterlilies email blasts coming soon!!
