Sailing Program

FYC sailing will host two J22’s well equipped with main, roller furling Jib, Torqeedo electric engine, two Torqeedo batteries, radio and life jackets.

All participants must have the following:

1) A CT safe boating Certificate

2) FYC certification to sail the boats

3) Signed Liability Waiver

The boats will be kept on a mooring in the mooring field and all registered sailors will be able to use the Club Launch to get to and from the boat. 

Launch radio is Channel 14.

For Sailors who want to use the boat for an extended sail, we will have gas outboards available. The Torqeedo Electric engines are primarily to get in and out of the Harbor. The Torqeedo engines will run a full 45 mins at full power per battery and each boat will be equipped with two batteries.  To be eligible to sign up for a boat, you must be pre-certified to sail the boat.  Only FYC Members and Auxiliary will be allowed to rent FYC boats.

To lease an FYC Boat, Go to the Members area of the FYCCT.ORG website, then to the Calendar.

In the Calendar, you will see a link for the morning and afternoon sessions.

Morning:  9am – 1 pm $50

Afternoon 2pm – 6 pm $50

To lease a boat for the full day, reserve for the morning and afternoon.

To lease a boat for Wed Night Racing, reserve the boat for the afternoon session.

For members who want to purchase the annual club membership, which will give members the ability to utilize the boat at any time, email the Sailing Chair to register for the annual membership.

As an annual member, you will still have to reserve the boat in the FYCCT.ORG calendar, a receipt for $50 per session will be generated.  As an annual member, when you and your crew go to rent the boat, your $50 fee will be waived.

Annual Sailing Membership - $1,000 per year.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email the Sailing Chair Michael Mears Sailing@FYCCT.ORG
