Adult Sailing Classes

The Dallas Corinthian Yacht Club (DCYC) and the Dallas Corinthian Educational Fund (DCEF) offers an Adult Basic Sailing Course, for DCYC members and non-members.  Two thirds of the instruction is on the water. This is not a beginner adult sailing class, but even a beginner can learn the skills necessary to safely handle a keelboat up to 25’ in length by taking this class.  This is also a good refresher and fundamentals class for the “experienced” sailor.

DCYC is offering two options; a one-day immersion class and a more detailed two weekend class for those that want more hands on training.  The class times may vary depending on weather conditions or holidays.

The one day class includes a Zoom  classroom session and up to 6  hours of sailing . This shortened Keelboat 101 classes has a open book written exam during the lunch break.

The two weekend class includes two Zoom  classroom sessions and up to 12  hours of sailing . This  Keelboat 101 class culminates with a  final written exam and a demonstration of the skills mastered.  The  demonstration sail is with the instructor acting as unskilled crew 

Upon completion a diploma will be issued, and the student should feel confident in taking a small keelboat sailing  in fair wind condition.


Two weekend Class: $200 member price per student, or $250 for non-members. One day Class: $100 member price and $150 non-club member price.

Costs includes classroom materials and training boats.

Classes are limited to 5 students, minimum 3 students.
