Windycrest Sailing Club has a long tradition of excellence in junior sailing in the southwest region of the country. For over 45 years Windycrest has been training junior sailors that participate in CSSA regional events, US Sailing Junior Championships, sail in collegiate programs, and pursue our sport after reaching adulthood. We also offer adult training programs for beginning and novice sailors. Occasionally we have seminars and courses for advanced cruising and racing sailors. Windycrest training programs strives to improve your sailing skills regardless of your level of expertise, allowing you to reach you sailing goals. All WSC training is overseen by US Sailing certified instructors. The Club owns Optimist, Sabot, Sunfish, Club 420, and Laser fleets for training purposes.

ADULT SAILING
The Adult Training Coordinator for 2018 is  Jason Williams - rear.commodore@windycrest.com

2018 Adult Sailing Lessons Adult Sailing Training will be offered as a two month long course meeting two times a week, Tuesdays from 6:00pm until sunset and Saturdays from 9:00am until 3pm. Classes will begin on Saturday, April 14th and run through Saturday, June 16th. 
     Please check the Events Calendar for exceptions to these dates.

Jason and his group of helpers are looking to help beginning and novice sailors and boat owners be comfortable and safe from the time they cast off until they return to the dock.

You will be using and critiquing your own boat and systems.  Safely approach and depart docks and anchorages. Learn better boat and sailing handling.

The training group will strive to be flexible enough to cater to your individual needs and skills.

Give Jason a call if you think you need a little help taking your sailing to the next level.
