Welcome to YCYC Summer Sailing!
The Yale Corinthian Yacht Club (YCYC or "yic-yic") is a public sailing facility used primarily by the Yale community and area residents. Located on Short Beach in Branford, Connecticut, it is the nation's oldest collegiate sailing organization, dating back to 1881, and is home to the Yale sailing team. Today, the yacht club offers a fleet of twenty high perfomance 420s (a 14 foot, two-person, self-rescuing dinghy). The club's sailing area is based in Short Beach Cove, a well-protected inlet of the Long Island Sound. YCYC offers group lessons for both adults and kids. Weekend lessons for adults are taught throughout the summer. More experienced sailors may enjoy the excitement of sailing in big waves on the Long Island Sound. The warm and shallow waters of Short Beach allow students to tear across the water in no time. As always, YCYC offers top-of-the-line junior instruction. Beginning, intermediate, and advanced kids will enjoy learning from our experienced staff of top collegiate sailors.
Every course provides excellent classroom and on-the-water instruction. Classes vary in size, scope, and length as per your individual needs. Private lessons and clinics are also available upon request. You do not need to be a YCYC summer member in order to take lessons or enroll your child in the junior program.
All equipment, with the exception of foul weather gear and personal clothing, is provided.
