  • ****New Boats for 2018**** RS Fevas come to SHYC!  New this summer we have leased 4 RS Fevas to be used in our JR Programs.  Check out our 2018 Class Offerings to learn how Fevas will be used at SHYC. RS 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.  The boats are also a big hit with Opti sailors who want to sail with a friend.  Racing and recreational sailors all love Fevas.  Learn more at RS Feva website.
  • 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.)
