Reyburn Sailing School
Come sail with us! Welcome to the Erie Yacht Club's Reyburn Sailing School. 2017 marks 67 years of excellence in sailing instruction. The Learn to Sail Program is open to the entire community, children, age 6-17 and adults 18 and up.
The mission of the Reyburn Sailing School is to support a Learn-to-Sail and Learn-to-Race program that teaches students, both children and adults the basics of boat handling, seamanship, safety, sportsmanship, and building friendships. The program strives to develop competence and confidence in our sailors in a safe and fun learning environment.
Our curriculum focuses on individual skill levels ranging from Beginner to Advanced Racing Sailors and carefully follows US SAILING guidelines. Our fleet consists of the Club 420, and the Optimist Pram. All are tried and proven as exceptionally safe and easy-to-sail boats for novice and accomplished sailors.
The staff of instructors have been carefully selected for their knowledge of the sport, as well as their ability to teach. Our instructors are CPR, First Aid, and USSAILING certified. Our beginner classes meet or exceed the USSailing recommended 6:1 student to instructor ratio. Highly qualified staff, well maintained equipment, excellent facilities, and a well structured curriculum ensure a safe and fun learning environment for all.
