2023 Summer Lessons

Under the guidance of our highly successful college and high school Sailing Educator, Mike Horn, our qualified and experienced instructors spend the summer teaching our children sailing. Swimming, and tennis lessons are also available. Additionally, adult tennis lessons are offered on Wednesday evenings. Lessons are held from late June through mid-August and are open to both members and non-members. Here is the schedule of 2023 Sessions for our Youth Program.

Session 1 • June 26 — July 7 • 1:30 pm to 5 pm
Session 2 • July 10 — 21 • 1:30 pm to 5 pm
Session 3 • July 24 — August 4 • 1:30 pm to 5 pm
Bonus Week • August 7 — 11 • 2 pm to 5 pm

TPYC also offers a program called Kids Discover Sailing (KDS). This is an introductory sailing experience for young children 7-8 which runs June 19-23.

Plan ahead, register now to avoid classes that will sell out!

For 2023 we will be anticipating higher than expected demand for lessons, so we encourage early registration to secure a spot for your child(ren). Important: be sure to coordinate with friends and family who wish to enroll students in the same sections. Preference of placement is offered to TPYC members in the event of oversubscription of sections that sell out.

Online Registration, Required Emergency Form & Payment Policy

Registration is now a fully online process which requires the completion of one registration form per child. Payment in full with a valid credit or debit card is required at time of registration.

When enrolling, families will also be required to complete an emergency contact form—one per family. Students will not be permitted to start lessons without a completed emergency contact form on file.

REGARDING COVID: During 2020-2022 Maine experienced a summertime spike in Covid cases. However, we want to rest assured knowing that our first priority is to provide a summer filled with positive and safe experiences for all Taylor Pond Yacht Club families.

As was the case over the past three years, all decisions about the operation of TPYC (including Summer Lessons) are being driven by public health considerations and policies which are subject to change with very little notice. Please pay attention to notices if and when they are sent out.

Please see the accompanying documents below for more details and then if you have additional questions before or after enrolling, please send an email to Sailing Committee member and program administrator Bruce Hall.

2023 Registration Information & Forms

During pre-registration the forms for registration, emergency contact, and payment will not be available. If you wish to pre-register a student in Summer Lessons at TPYC please email Mike Horn. Once full Summer Lessons registration is opened, you will be notified.
