About the Class
Boats: Sunfish, Beetles, Typhoons, Wianno Seniors
*2-5 students per boat, sometimes with instructors.
Kids who believe that sailing should be about having fun on the water while hanging out with friends. They may or may not sail with an instructor. This class primarily uses Sunfish and Cape Dory Typhoons to explore the Hyannis Port area, including excursions into Lewis Bay, and, on calmer days, out into Nantucket Sound. Typhoons can comfortably hold 4-6 sailors. They are relatively easy to sail and provide students the opportunity to practice driving the boat and working both the mainsail and jib. Adventurers will learn basic navigation and seamanship – including anchoring, making a mooring, docking, boat care, and knots –but will also sail to local destinations for swimming, beach exploration, and occasional picnics. As weather and student interest dictate, we may also use Wianno Seniors.

I have such fond childhood memories learning how to sail at HPYC and am so excited to return as the Program Director. I am a teacher by trade and have raised 5 children who love sailing. For the past 10 years, I have been at Tabor Academy, where I was selected to revamp their summer sailing program.
I am committed to making our program one that is engaging and fun for the whole HP community. I look forward to meeting the people I don’t know and reconnecting with old friends!
