Please return your proxy!
All Active members should have recently received a notice in the mail of a special meeting of the membership to be held on Saturday, December 14, 2013 at 1:30 p.m. at Hamilton Creek Sailboat Marina. The purpose of the meeting is to amend the PPYC Constitution by adding one additional officer to the board and to rename some of the other director positions. See the meeting notice for details. No other business will be conducted at the special meeting.
A proxy was included with the meeting notice. We are asking all members to return the proxy. The purpose of the proxy is to establish a quorum and to enter your vote on the proposed amendment. Please indicate your vote, print your name, sign and date it, and return the proxy by December 10, 2013 so your vote can be counted.
Sailing Education at PPYC
Learning at the Helm (LATH)
PPYC Learning at the Helm (LATH) is intended for those new to sailing. The LATH group meets every Tuesday night, March through September. LATH is open to adults (minimum 18 years old) interested in learning how to sail. For more information, check out the LATH page.
Basic Sailing Course
For members who have already participated in LATH or who have some prior sailing experience, PPYC offers an introduction to sailing in a brief, practical, step-by-step course. The Basic Sailing Course starts in mid-April and continues through September. The course consists of six classes. For more information, check out the Sailing Education page.
PPYC announces the "Mentoring Program." This program will pair Basic Sailing Course graduates with a skilled skipper for a confidence-building sailing experience. It will last 4-6 sessions with 2-4 other sailors. There are many in the club who have completed the Basic Sailing Course but have not yet moved into the Club Boat Program. The Mentoring Program is your ticket to feeling well prepared to take the check ride so that you can participate in the Club Boat Program. More information is available on the Sailing Education page.
Club Boat Program
PPYC's Club Boat Program for members has five boats. An O'Day 23 and Catalina 22 are available to Ensign level members. In addition to the O'Day 23 and Catalina 22, a Northstar 500 and an S2 7.3 are available to Pilot level members (Pilot level requires a higher level of qualification). We also have an O'Day Day Sailer available to any Active level member at no extra cost above regular club dues. Visit the Club Boat Program page for more information.
