LIYC H20 Sailing Clinic

Posted on behalf of Bob Yates:

Finally, the coast appears to be clear, and we have scheduled two Sailing Clinics for next month (October 30 and November 13). These clinics are for sailors who wish to improve their sailing skills. They will be taught by experienced mentor sailors, and will include a variety of subjects from boat handling skills, crewing, rules, and racing. We hope that you will consider attending.

Sailors who previously signed up and paid for clinics that were postponed may attend for NO CHARGE, but you must still register. To register, click the following link: Log in | Sign up (theclubspot.com).

NOTE THAT EVERYONE MUST BE REGISTERED IN ADVANCE.

Hope to see you at Lido Isle.

Sail for the Visually Impaired, Saturday, October 9, ALYC

COVID permitting, ALYC is scheduled to host Sailing for the Visually Impaired on Saturday, October 9.

History:
The annual Sail for the Visually Impaired (SVI) has grown to become one of the most important and well attended philanthropic events in Newport Harbor. Each year, over 250 blind or visually impaired guests and their escorts spend a day sailing with volunteers from the American Legion Yacht Club and other area yacht clubs. There are over 150 volunteers acting as sailing skippers, crew, escorts to and from the docks, meal servers, guide dog sitters, check-in personnel, marina control, parking assignment, and other positions.

ALYC is seeking Harbor 20 sailors to bring their boats and participate in this event. They have asked that all participants be fully vaccinated.

If you are interested in participating click here for the event page.

If you have questions, please contact Tony at 949-209-7305.

We hope to see you there!
