Women's Sailing

Women’s Sailing 2015


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.

Inter Club Supper Series

These events are held on five Monday evenings, rotated among PYC, Black Rock, Norwalk, Noroton and indian harbor.  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. 

To sign up or further information contact: Katie Montgomery

PYC Sail and Sip

Similar to the Interclub program from May/June, this event will be held only at PYC on friday evenings , June 26 - august 28.  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.



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 an 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 Heasman.
