8/7 - Monday
8/20 - Sunday (Closing Meeting)

Question of the week: A lot of parents have been asking about private lessons for their children (and themselves). Private sailing lessons help many sailing school students brush the cobwebs off from a winter spent away from sailing or help sailors develop skills that need special focus.  We encourage parents to reach out to Chris Beard to discuss staff availability and to help find the best match for students.  These lessons take place outside of Sailing School and are not part of the Sailing School. For more information visit

Visit our website to see the interactive calendar, which can be viewed in full or by specific categories; the full summer calendar; and printable Session 1 and Session 2 calendars

From LUNCH@SHYC Committee
This Week's Activities: Chatham Shellfish Nursery Visits!

Join us this Monday and Tuesday for a special Lunch@SHYC learning opportunity… A field trip to the Chatham Shellfish Nursery, right next door to SHYC! We will learn how shellfish are grown from seed, and even get to touch them inside their tanks. There are 3 million baby sea creatures living right next door to us… who knew?
Bring your bag lunch to the Club and join us for a hands-on experience that is one of the favorite moments or our lunch program every summer. While sign ups are not necessary, please email me to let me know if your child is coming so I can have enough staff on hand to chaperone. There is a $5 dollar fee for Lunch@SHYC, due to staffing costs. You will see it on your bill at the end of the summer. 

Join us- we always have a ball and always learn something new! ~Sonja Bartlett
