Women's Sailing

Women’s Sailing 2014

 

Welcome to the PYC Women’s Sailing web page.  We’re all about enjoying time with friends; both on the water and off.  We welcome beginners through competent sailors, as there are opportunities for all!

 

Please read through the list of activities for the upcoming summer and join us!

 

Big Boat Cruising

On Monday afternoons, skippers of the club’s larger boats take members out for an afternoon sail.  The trip is determined by the wind and the tide, departing at 1 pm and returning around 4 pm.  Participants have the opportunity to help with the lines and take the helm, or just relax and enjoy the summer breeze.

For further information contact: Victoria Ross

 

Inter Club Supper Series

These events are held on four Monday evenings, rotated among PYC, Black Rock, Norwalk and Noroton.  The purpose of the evening is to get members to participate in some social sailing with women from the other clubs.  The host club provides a light supper, with the traveling clubs bringing wine to share.

Kayaking

This can be a great way to meet members and explore the harbor and surrounding shoreline.   Kayakers will meet Saturday mornings at 9 am down by the Jr. dock to launch the boats and set off.  The club currently owns one boat for members to use.

Remember to wear your PFD and take a radio with you.

For further information contact: Donna Brown or Leslie Bene.

 

Pequot Women’s I-18 Regatta

This is a great day of competitive racing here at PYC in Ideals.  Competitors are invited from the other eight area clubs, with PYC providing boats for the guests.  A skippers’ meeting is at 10 am, with the awarding of prizes at approx. 4 pm.

PYC Sail and Sip

Similar to the Interclub program from May/June, this event will be held only at PYC on Monday evenings in July and August. Women are invited to meet on the Jr. porch, hop into the Ideals for an evening sail, then return to the club and relax on the upper deck.  Membership in the Ideal program is not a requirement for participation in this event.

For further information contact Kristi Marshall.

 

Be sure to mark your calendars with the dates:

Monday July 14, 21, and 28

Aug. 4 and 11

 

Wine and Cheese

These events were very popular last year.  They are designed as a “drop in” event where members/guests are asked to bring either a drink or a hors d’oeurve to share.  Dress is casual, so either coming directly from work or just off the boat, don’t miss the fun.

For further information contact Diana Thomson or Louise Heaseman.
