As we gear up for the upcoming sailing season, we’re thrilled to announce 2 exciting new additions to our club offerings: two Shark 24 sailboats (Swamp Queen 3 and Mussels) will be made available exclusively for our members to enjoy at no cost!

This initiative is aimed at enhancing your PCYC sailing experience, be it cruising or racing, provide invaluable opportunities for skill development and fostering a stronger sense of community among our members. Whether you’re a seasoned racer or looking to embark on your first cruise on our lake, this opportunity is for you.

To ensure the safety and enjoyment of all members, please note that there are a few prerequisites that must be met before taking these boats out on the water:

  1. Eligibility: Members with suitable and reasonable sailing experience are welcome to access these Sharks. Additionally, graduates from our Adult Keelboat Sailing Course are also eligible to enjoy this privilege. To race Mussels, individuals should possess prior racing experience.
  2. Proficiency Check: All members interested in sailing these Sharks must undergo a proficiency check to demonstrate their sailing skills and knowledge of safety procedures. The thoroughness of the proficiency checks will vary according to each members experience level and their chosen Shark. This check will be conducted by any one of our experienced team members to ensure that everyone is capable and confident on the water.
  3. Responsible Sailors: We expect all members to adhere to the highest standards of safety and responsibility while using these boats. This includes following all club rules and regulations, respecting other sailors and watercraft, and practicing good seamanship at all times. All users must read the Guidelines for Sailing a Club Shark 24.

We also want to take a moment to acknowledge and thank the Parnell family, who previously owned Swamp Queen. Their dedication and hard work have transformed this vessel into a stunning sailboat, ready to be enjoyed by our club members.
