  • RS Fevas are back for a 3rd year at SHYC = 6 brand new boats for summer 2020!  Starting back in 2018, we leased RS Fevas to be used in our JR Programs.  The boats were a huge success and loved by sailors ages 10 to 15 years old.  Click here to read an article in WindCheck about Fevas at SHYCRS Fevas are the fastest growing double handed dinghy worldwide and are taking off as training boats in our area! The boats are targeted at tweens/teens that are too small for a 420s and for racing sailors looking to broaden their skills and try out a modern style, fast dingy with an asymmetrical cute.
  • Private sailing lessons:  For all levels of sailors, ages 6+ to adults, in Optis, FEVAs, BICs, or 420s. Private lessons with SHYC instructors must be billed through your SHYC account for insurance requirements. Coordinate times with instructors directly. (Fee = Private or Semi-Private lessons are $45/hour.)
