Building off the success of its previous two programs, the Sailing School is a merger of the Winches (women's sailing program) and the family sailing pilot program.
No boat ownership or previous experience is required.
"This is a fantastic and affordable opportunity to learn the basics of sailing while also getting the chance to get out on the water and have fun," said GRSC Program Chair Lindsey Frye. "So many people that I've talked with never had the chance to learn to sail on small boats when they were young, so this is a way for adults to learn on bigger, more comfortable boats."
The program will cast off in May with three 60-minute workshops held at the GRSC clubhouse, located at 219 N. Harbor in Grand Haven.
Topics will include boating safety, boat control, and various sailing tips and techniques from GRSC sailors.
Once students complete the workshops, they'll have the opportunity to join GRSC members on Lake Michigan during Monday Night Lite racing. The Monday Night Lite program provides a fun racing experience in a non-competitive environment.
