Our goal is to prepare our children for a safe, knowledgeable future in racing and/or casual sailing.

Faithe Murphy will lead our team of instructors this year. Faithe has had quite a long history with the Chappy Community Center. She started her sailing career at our beloved sailing program when she was young, and since then, has worked at Longshore Sailing School in her hometown of Westport, CT. Teaching mostly on Waterbugs and RS Quests, Faithe is super excited to get back to her roots and spend some time with our Sunfishes. She has been spending her summers on Chappy since she was born, so she knows the island inside and out and is always ready for an island adventure. Faithe graduated high school in 2021, and took a gap year traveling around Europe and South America, visiting 16 countries! In the fall of 2022, she will be starting her freshman year at Colgate University, in Hamilton, NY. 



** Inclement weather updates will be communicated via Instagram, Facebook, and text messages on inclement weather days. **

As you all know, the island delivers its fair share of weather conditions in the form of fog, too much wind, too little wind, high seas, and more. The program office and instructors check conditions daily and make decisions to keep our participants safe.

  1. In the event we have to cancel a private lesson due to inclement weather, we will make every effort to reschedule at a mutually convenient time. 
  2. If we deem the morning unsafe to carry on with our kid’s sailing program, we will have a “dry deck” lesson as an alternative. In these sessions, children will learn boating safety skills, knot tying, weather patterns, rigging, and more. Dry deck sessions may be conducted on the beach, on the float, or at the center. 

Cancellation/Refund Policy

Unfortunately, we are unable to offer refunds, but we are happy to apply your payment to another program or consider it a donation to the CCC.
