The PYC Adult Sailing Education took a giant step forward in 2011 when Chattanooga State Technical Community College published our Adult Sailing Education course in its catalog.  PYC member Brian Holloway, a U.S. Sailing Level One Certified Instructor, taught several courses and eight sailors graduated.   Buzz Cole, an ASA certivied instructor, has since taken responsibility for the Adult Sailing Education classes.  The courses appear again in the CSTCC Continuing Education Catalog, and we are looking forward to another semester of new sailors on the water.

The Chatt State CE Catalog describes the course this way.  "Learn the art of sailing!  US Sailing certified instructor teaches sailboat handling, knot tying, marlinspike seamanship, navigation rules, and sportsmanship on the open waters of Lake Chickamauga.  Participants will be able to safely and successfully navigate a sailboat under normal weather conditions at the same time they are learning the great sport of sailing."
