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.

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.

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

Membership in the Ideal program is not a requirement for participation in this event.

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.
