PPYCU prep for Rookie Race

Note: Because of current restrictions and the number of participants interested in attending this event we will be changing to an online meeting.  We will email registered participants a meeting link ahead of the meeting time.   (If you have not received the link by Friday Sep 3 at 4:00 PM or you register after that time please send an email to sailing@ppyc.org. )



The goal of this class is to prepare you for the "Rookie Race" on September 11, 2021.

Who should care about this class and the Rookie Race? I am glad you asked!
  • If you are newish to sailing or have been cruising for quite some time and would like to know, "why all the fuss about Sailboat Racing", then sign up for this training class. Next, head over to the  "Rookie Race" on the calendar and sign up your boat there too.
  • If you are in the club boat program, reserve the club boat of your choice for the Rookie Race on the 11th. Then come back here and register for both this class and the Rookie Race. While you are at it, get some of your fellow club boat members to crew and share the tiller with you at the Rookie Race.
  • If you are a racer and have crew itching to skipper. Then offer them your boat for the rookie race and offer them your time as a ride along coach. Your budding skipper can decide if they want to skip this class since they will have you on board to help out on race day.
  • If you are in the Bee Fleet, click "Register Now". You don't even need a reason.
  • If it has been a while since you approached a start line and you need a refresher, join us.
