First Mate: Ages 5-7
Prerequisites: Competent Swimmer with a life vest.
(A swimming test will be administered to all students on the first day of their lessons, consisting of 50 yard swim with a life jacket, and treading water for 3 minutes with a life jacket.)
It’s never too early to get out on the water! This beginner program introduces younger children to the fundamentals of boating. After some land-based fun practicing how to rig, bail and steer a Pram dinghy, First Mate students sail with instructors on our 14-foot RS Quests around Plymouth Harbor. During these group sails, students will practice steering and trimming sails, and learning to watch the wind, tide and currents. In week 2, sailors pair up in Prams for their first taste of hands-on sailing. Four 2-week sessions will be offered this season. Once they are competent, a 7- year old First Mate student may be given recommendation to move up to our Mate 1 class.


Mate 1: Ages 7-10
Prerequisites: Competent Swimmer
(A swimming test will be administered to all students on the first day of their lessons, consisting of 50 yard swim with a life jacket, and treading water for 3 minutes with a life jacket.)

This year, TWO Mate classes, "A" and "B" will be offered. Our Mate program continues fundamental skills for sailors who started in First Mate, or can be a first class for older beginner sailors, learning boating safety and sailing concepts in the classroom and on the water. Students sail Prams dinghies, with 2 students sailing in each boat. The focus is on basic boat handling skills: on rigging and righting the boat, understanding the impact of tide and wind on navigation and how to set and follow a course. Mate 1 sailors celebrate their new skills in their season end regatta, the Lynne Jewell Cup, named for PYC’s beloved Olympic Gold Medalist and junior program graduate.

Adventure Sailing: Ages 11-16
Prerequisites: Competent Swimmer
(A swimming test will be administered to all students on the first day of their lessons, consisting of 50 yard swim with a life jacket, and treading water for 3 minutes with a life jacket.)

Fun, no-pressure sailing to destinations around Plymouth Harbor for beginner teens & tweens! Adventure and fun await these sailors on our exciting 14-foot RS Quests as they sail together in one boat to their chosen destination. Each sailor is responsible for part of the boat’s operation, tuning and handling. They will also learn boat rigging, righting and how to maximize performance both upwind and downwind. Sailors often opt for more sessions and bigger adventures as skills increase.

REQUIRED EQUIPMENT (You must supply yourself): All PYC sailors will be required to wear a U.S. Coast Guard approved life jacket with plastic whistle attached on a lanyard (string) while on the pier, in floats or in boats. Closed-toe, rubber-soled shoes, or non-skid shoes (boat shoes, sneakers or dinghy boots) are mandatory. No flip flops or Croc-type footwear are permitted. All sailors must also have a snugly-fitting fabric face covering to comply with current Covid-19 regulations.
