What we're about
This group is for anyone who's interested in sailing but doesn't know where to start... and this is a great place to do it! No prior sailing experience is necessary, but any boating experience is good! We'll be meeting mostly on Thursday nights at the Genesee Yacht Club down in the Rochester river basin, and have several of the GYC Mentoring Skippers ready to take new sailors out for some hands-on experience sailing a variety of boats - and hope that our new sailors will be full of questions and ready to learn about the sport of sailing. This is truly as hands-on as you want it to be - you'll be able to trim the sails, take the helm, and learn about boat-speak, as well as learn boater-safety and some of the rules of the road when out on the water.
