Introduction to Sailing Camp Session #2 @ Public Docks by Petaluma Yacht Club
Jul 25 @ 11:00 am – 2:00 pm

 

Sailing, sailing...

Sailing, sailing…

This four-day afternoon camp allows anyone, aged 12 and above, to work with 8′ El Toros, a 14′ Lido and a 14′ FJ to learn how or practice again to work with the wind to move a boat. Petaluma’s turning basin, future site of The Floathouse board and boat rental center PSCC is building for the community, is a prime spot for catching a breeze in these small boats. Learn technique and terminology and come away with a newfound respect for one of Petaluma’s best natural resources: the wind!

Cost is $175.00. We also work with Mentor Me Petaluma and the Petaluma Community Foundation to offer scholarships.

Thanksgiving break for Petaluma students: Get out on the water!
Nov 23 – Nov 30 all-day

With a whole week off of school, the kids are going to want some quality outdoor time, and what better way to get it than renting a boat or board from our partners, Clavey Paddlesports and Petaluma SUP. Of course, when The Floathouse is up and running, you’ll be able to rent an even wider variety of water craft, and get out much more easily from our safe low docks. How about donating today to help us build it?
