Winter Sailing Has Started

Our Winter Practice Program has started! Every weekend through February our Ragnots will be braving the cold weather. So far we have been lucky and have had very mild weather. Opti sailors meet on Saturday, our day starts with a workout, morning chalk talk, then off to the water. We are wrapped up by 4pm. Sunday Lasers and 420s practice starting at 11am finishing up at 4pm.

When the weather is not favorable for sailing, our dedicated coaches have put together a wide variety of sailing related activities as well as field trips. Come on out and join us this weekend and meet the team! Contact Laura for more information.

HYC has the strongest youth sailing program in the Galveston Bay area, a program that offers activities for all interests. The mission of the Youth Program, also known as the Ragnots, is to develop knowledgeable young sailors while instilling in them the love for the sport of sailing that will serve as a foundation for the future of our club and our sport.

The Ragnot program offers practice and events throughout the year, including special occasion events as well as parties, field trips, cookouts, and after-school and weekend sailing practice. In summer we offer a week long overnight camp for Ragnots, and many day camps, that include all levels of sailing camps as well as our new Summer Fun Camp where Ragnots get to sail, fish, kayak, and paddle board.

HYC has a full-time Sailing Coach and part-time seasonal coaches. Facilities include a Ragnot room in the main clubhouse, numerous dingy storage lockers, dollies, and two launching ramps. Members of the Ragnot program have access to the Ragnot fleet, which includes Optimists, 420s, Flying Scotts and Sun Fish. The Ragnots keep in touch through their Google Group.
