Covid-19 Update

 The PDYC Sailing School committee continues to monitor the situation and will make a decision on the 2021 season for the Dinghy program in Febuary or March..   The Keelboat program will go ahead for 2021 (see Adult Programs link for class details).  We're all in this together and hopefully by next summer, we can see each other on the water again.  Check out our facebook page to keep in touch
