Looking to get started in sailing? Pontchartrain Yacht Club offers adult sailing lessons for individuals looking to gain a new skill. Each clinic consists of four sessions, each of which is three hours long. We currently accept three students per clinic to maintain a low teacher to student ratio. Classes are taught by our very own Sailing Director, Mike McKnight. Classes available in the spring and fall.

Attached is the NOR and chart for this year’s RTL race to be held on July 28. The info will soon also be on our website, www.corinthians.org , where you will be able to register using Regatta Network. The race is free for all current CSA members. The fee for non-members is only $20.
This year we have initiated a new concept to hopefully get more boats to enter: For the first 20 CSA boats that register the boat’s skipper will get a free CSA polo shirt with his boat’s name embroidered on it (provided the boat actually starts & finishes the race).
