Welcome to the WSC Training Page
Training programs for Juniors and Adults.
Windycrest Sailing Club has a long tradition of excellence in junior
sailing in the southwest region of the country. For over 50 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.
If you are interested in learning to sail, the Windycrest training
programs are a great place to start. It is a fun, low key, inexpensive
place to begin. Minimum age to participate is 8 years old, and you're
never too old to learn. Contact the Windycrest
complete details on how you can get started enjoying the lifelong
sport of sailing.
For our schedules go to our Racing & Events Calendar.
For Windycrest, Centerboards classes (smaller, lighter boats) and Keelboat classes (heavier cabin style boats) race on the same day.
The PRO or Principal Race Officer, is the person running the races for the day. They conscript a group of 6 people to assist them.
There are generally 3 people on the Race committee boat, and 2 each on the two mark boats.
Michael 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.
Send Michael an email if you think you need a little help taking your sailing to the next level.
