Covid-19 Update

 The PDYC Sailing School committee has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 season for the Dinghy program.   The Keelboat program may go ahead, but the final decision has not yet been made.   We will have two coaches on staff this summer to take any questions you might have and engage youth through social media and other means.   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
