East Chop Beach Club
2018 Summer Sailing Program at East Chop
Dear Sailors and Parents,
This summer the East Chop Yacht Club will provide a sailing program, five days a week, Monday through Friday, for seven weeks from Monday, July 2nd through Friday, August 17th.
To participate, your child must be between the ages of eight and seventeen years old and be able to pass our swimming test. We realize that many children are not here for the entire summer, but we suggest, that to get the most out of the program, you should enroll your child for a minimum of two weeks. Yacht club membership is not required to enroll your children, but if you are not a beach club member, sponsorship as a guest is required. Our lesson fees are the same as last year at $115 per week per child.
The children begin sailing in Optimist prams. As they gain more confidence and experience, they graduate to the more competitive racing 420's. We try to keep our program affordable for everyone. A detailed program description is available upon written request and may also be obtained from our sailing masters.
Please send to us your application and the required fees as soon as possible. Space is limited by the number of available trainer boats we have in the program. Our boat house will be open and our sailing masters available to answer any individual questions from Monday, July 2nd before the beginning of classes. Please send completed application and your check to PO Box 525, Oak Bluffs, MA 02557. The yacht club phone number is 508696-7716. Please call us at this number, not the beach club number. If you have any questions before the opening of our boat house, you can also reach me by my winter phone at 609-799-0700, or on East Chop: Page Stephens at 508-693-0532
Henry W. Jeffers Sailing Director
