Learn to Sail – The Genesee Yacht Club has a learn to sail program on Thursday evenings. This program includes basic sailing education and an opportunity to sail on Lake Ontario with an experienced sailor. No prior sailing experience is required, and you can be as hands-on and involved as you wish. For more information checkout our New Sailor Night Meet-Up page.

In an effort to serve a larger contingent of interested sailors, Genesee Yacht Club owns two boats. Use of the boats are reserved for GYC members and the cost is $450 per year, including dockage, insurance, fuel, etc. Experienced boaters will attest, this is far below the cost of individually owning a boat.
Our Community Sailing Group Boats:
Maple Leaf – This is a 24 foot S-2 7.3 sailboat that is set up perfectly for beginning sailors including a roller furling genoa. The S-2 7.3 is known to be a very stable boat with plenty of room in the cockpit.

Silent Partner – This is a C&C-25 sailboat; it is a stable boat perfect for day sailing.
