PCYC WINTER SCHEDULE 2021-2022   &  INFORMATION

Contact Fede Donzino  fdonzino@gmail.com

PCYC is here to help with your development and enjoy the off season sailing.

Winter sailing is strongly recommended. The regattas on our winter calendar are the highest-level events in  the US. They offer a unique opportunity for our sailors to learn and improve their sailing skills while  training and racing with the best sailors in North America. International experience has proven to be one of  the most important ingredients in our program´s success in terms of development.

Event Information & pricing: 

The planning for this winter will be run by Federico Donzino. Each event has a Pre-event training (dates are posted on the schedule above). 

IN ORDER TO organize these regattas and trainings, we need to take a minimum of 4 and no more than 10 sailors for the Regatta. (For double handed this means two boats). If the team gets more that 10 (5 boats) a second coach will be needed and the costs will be split amongst the team. 

If there is any parent who wants to be team leader, your participation will be helpful for us and our planning. 

In order to be considered part of the team for each regatta, please click here (coming soon) and complete the  checklick. 

It will be first come first basis. 

If travel is not possible events will be cancelled.
