Adult Sailing at BYC

Here at the Beachwood Yacht Club the fun isn’t just for the kids, we offer sailing classes for adults also.  If you’re between the ages of 18-80, come out and play! We set up a fun course that is open to both members and non-members.

In this course, you will learn the basics of sailing:

  • How to rig and de-rig a boat
  • Learn the different parts of the boat
  • Label parts of the boat
  • Become comfortable steering
  • Learn starboard and port, windward and leeward
  • Learn to tack and Jibe  safely

We have a four-week program for both beginners and racing tactics classes, given in a sunfish. We have a limited number of sunfish rentals, so sign up fast, these spots fill up quickly!


The goal of this course is to enable student graduates to be able to sail a triangular race course.

Please view the Full Calendar of Events for class dates.

Once our students have finished their courses, we invite you to join us in our annual four-week series, 

The Yuengling Cup Regatta.
