The 2019 Neill Clinic will be held from Thursday, June 6 to Sunday, June 9 .  We know that some schools are running later because of snow and cold days – unfortunately we were not able to change the Clinic dates.

MISSION:
The mission of the Neill Advanced Sailing Clinic is to provide accomplished high school sailors with intense, high quality sailing instruction by top collegiate coaches.

WHAT HAPPENS AT THE CLINIC?
Three and a half days of intense, on the water coaching, by successful college coaches followed by personal debrief sessions. This program consists of lectures and on-the-water drills including tactics, strategy, sail trim, boat speed, etc. Coaches utilize video footage, archival footage, chalk talks, land demos and on-the-water exercises. Additionally, our coach to boat ratio is low with one coach for four boats and attendees have the opportunity to work with all of our coaches.

The Neill Advanced Sailing Clinic is sponsored by the Chicago Yacht Club Foundation, a 501(c)(3) not for profit corporation.
