Sailing

Sailing has been a tradition at the GPYC since its inception. We are located on Lake St. Clair, after all. The GPYC is the place to be for world-class sailing. Sign up for private or group lessons, or book a sailing tour or sunset sail experience!
 

Adult Sailing Lessons

Sailors are taught aboard Grosse Pointe Yacht Club’s newly restored J-22’s and instructors are U.S. Sailing Certified. Whether you are new to sailing or want to improve your sailing, navigation or racing techniques we can tailor a program to your needs. Skills taught in Learn to Sail include rigging, boat handling, steering with a tiller, main and jib sail trim, entering and leaving the harbor, points of sail, wind, knot tying and sailing safety. </br></br> Participants will sail with a professional coach on each boat. All classes will be video taped for viewing on our new classroom in the Marine Activity Center (MAC).
