- TYC Wednesday Night Sailing
Tammany Yacht club is once again sponsoring its annual Wednesday Night Spring Sailing Series.  If you have always wanted to learn to sail or just want to brush up on your sailing skills, there is no better way than to participate in TYC Wednesday Night Racing. 

You do not need to be a member of the club to join in on what is a fun, social, and exciting evening of sailing.  It doesn’t matter if you own your own boat or would like to crew on someone else’s, the spring series is open to all.  The skipper’s meeting is next Wednesday, March 6th starting at 7pm at Tammany Yacht Club (above Phil’s Marina Café).  Those interested are encouraged to attend for a rules / chalk talk briefing along with burgers and beer. 

Racing starts the following Wednesday and will consist of three series.  The first series will be a three week non-spinnaker series with the following two series lasting five weeks each and consisting of both spinnaker and non-spinnaker classes.  The objective is to get as many boats with as many people out on the water for a fun and educational experience.

- TYC 2013 Junior Summer Sailing Camp
The TYC 2013 Summer Sailing Camp is just around the corner and the committee has hired Paul Barnes as our new sailing director for this year’s sessions.  Paul is highly qualified in sailing instruction and has coached at both New Orleans and Southern Yacht Clubs.  We are all looking forward to having him aboard to lead our team to the most successful year ever.  He has also instructed adult sailing classes and we hope to utilize his talent to expand beyond our juniors program in the near future. 

* The price for the sailing camp is as follows.
A TYC Family Member’s pricing for each 2 week session is $350 per child.
A Non-TYC Member’s pricing for each 2 week session is $400 per child.

From now through March 15th Tammany Yacht Club members have the option of reserving a place in one or more of these sessions. After that date all remaining slots will be open to the general public on a first come first serve basis.  If you or anyone you know would like to reserve a place in this year’s camp, you must do so by filling out an enrollment form and mailing it to or dropping it by the club along with a $100 deposit for each student. This application will be available at the club or on the website to download and printout.   Please be sure to indicate which of the following sessions you are reserving.

First session                  June 3rd – June 14Th
   Second Session            June 17th – June 28th
         Third Session                  July 8th – July 19th

There will be a one week advanced session with more emphasis on racing following the 3rd session and that will be by invitation only.  Due to US Sailing guide lines; space is limited so please make reservations early if you would like your child or grandchild to attend.  Children from ages 7 – 16 are eligible.
