Sailing Classes


We are very fortunate to have Mr. Gary Evoniuk at the helm as our Rear Commodore for Sail in 2019. Gary is also in charge of the Club's Cal-20 Adult Sailing Program. With this great program, maybe it’s time for you to join the fun on the water!

Sign up for training on one of the Cub’s Cal 20's. Gary is happy to work with you to provide a custom program or a single lesson to get your feet wet. The cost is surprisingly reasonable and is best discussed with Gary as he can join interested parties to bring the cost down further. Drop Gary an email at

The Cal 20 is one of the most popular small keelboats ever built.  When you are ready, one can be purchased locally at a low cost. At current rates, slips are affordable and wait times are shorter than for larger boats.  But, if you don't want to buy, and you are a member at WYC, following completion of the course and/or certification for those who already have sufficient sailing expertise, you can charter a Cal 20 (half-day or full-day) for a very reasonable charge. 

The Club’s basic sailing program is a 12-hour course, consisting of four three-hour lessons on the water off Waikiki and Diamond Head. Topics covered in these classes include: seamanship, terminology, knot-tying, rules of the road, navigation, and boat maintenance.   Please contact Gary for more information.
