ETYSA SUMMER SAILING CAMP
Also still Available...
ADULT SAILING CLASSES - NO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED
From the President:
Greetings from chilly New Bern,
I am posting this note to inform everyone interested that we will be experiencing some delay in both scheduling and implementing our Summer Sailing Camps. Damage at our site, Blackbeard Sailing Club, from Hurricane Florence, was substantial. Two of our docks are OK, but the third was destroyed by the storm. Blackbeard has a plan and a contract to have it replaced ASAP. It is unknown right when “soon” will begin. Projected start date is now April 1, completion by June 15 or so. The job will make it impossible to hold Camps until the first week after July 4th, at best.
As I learn more, I will update this posting. When we can setup a schedule of Camps, we will post it here and inform current members via email.
Thank you. Stick with us, we’ll be back!!!
Whether you are just learning to sail or trying to qualify for the US National Team, we will have a camp for you!!!
Have your 8-16 year old participate in ETYSA Sailing Camp this summer to learn to sail with quality instructors at Blackbeard Sailing Club. Sailing Instructors are Level 1 certified and will be supported by a team of local sailing volunteers. Attendees will be trained to sail on the Neuse River. The ETYSA fleet consists of Opti, Topaz and 420 sailboats.
Edward Teach Youth Sailing Association located at Blackbeard Sailing Club on the Neuse River in New Bern, NC. It is a non-profit organization established to foster, encourage, and promote the amateur sport of sailing through participation and competition.
