Stand Up Paddleboard Outings 

Organized throughout the summer, depending on tides and weather. Bring your SUP to the Club for an outing to Snake River, the Mitchell River Bridge or just around Stage Harbor while the kids are sailing. A limited number of SUP storage spots AND a limited number of Club SUPs are available at SHYC on a first come, first served basis, please contact Sara Wilson for more information.



Private Instruction, Recreational Sailing & Club Boat Usage

Members may use Club boats for private instruction with any member of the Sailing School staff. Adults may take private or semi-private lessons. We strongly encourage parents to sail with their children over the summer, private lessons on a Club Day Sailer are a great way to participate in the sport as a family.

At the discretion of the Program Director, members may use Club boats for recreational sailing and racing.
