Women's Sailing Seminar

What our Graduates Say

"Had the best time and will definitely recommend this sailing seminar to other women. The time spent both in class and on the water was perfect. Great for the beginner."

"The price was right and the excitement and acceptance by everyone at CYC was incredible."

"I LOVED the seminar- everyone was so warm and welcoming and made me feel comfortable to be a Beginner."

"I loved hearing the stories of “How I got started and where I ended up” - The instructors & the facilities were TOP OF THE LINE."

"I was so impressed that the guys who taught us were clearly very experienced and competent, but never made anyone feel like they asked a dumb question. Everyone was very humble and knowledgeable."

"I loved finally getting clear on some basics, that I’d always felt embarrassed about not knowing - Port vs. Starboard. Doing that silly little exercise of standing up and turning and being quizzed repeatedly, I finally really got it."

"I thought the balance of classroom/water was good and I loved the hands on experience."

"The actual sailing was my favorite part!!"

"This seminar has been life changing; I’m in love with sailing!!! Thank-you, Thank-you!"

"I want to thank you, and everyone else involved in the seminar, for a truly great experience. It was everything that I expected."

Open to all women.

This year The Corinthian Women celebrates 30 years of inspiring women to sail. The Corinthian's Womens Sailing Seminar (WSS) is a weekend packed with sailing, instruction and fun. The WSS is aimed at beginning sailors or those who would like to refresh their sailing skills.

Both mornings we begin with breakfast, followed by active classroom instruction. The first day covers preparing to sail (clothing, safety, equipment), boat terminology, how sailboats work, reading the wind and points of sail, and some knots, for good measure! Day 2 reviews day 1, and adds finer points about rules of the road, basic navigation, tides and weather, man overboard procedure, … and more knots. 

Both afternoons we spend on the water — sailing, of course! — in small groups so everyone gets a chance to try everything. Students put into practice what they learned that morning.

Each boat has an experienced skipper and an instructor to assist and answer any questions. All our volunteers are patient teachers/sailors; having once been novices themselves, they are delighted to be sharing their passion of sailing with you.

We end, not with a test about knots, but with a We Did It! "Graduation" party on the deck. Although the party’s fun, we always hear that the sailing was the Best.

Become more knowledgeable and confident as you begin or renew your interest in sailing. We all have a lot of fun (check our Facebook page!) We look forward to seeing you -- bring a friend and get a discount!
