2024 Learn to Sail Auction

Welcome to the 32nd anniversary of our pinnacle fundraising event -- the 2024 PCYC Learn to Sail Auction! This year we have the ambitious goal of raising another $60,000 for our Learn to Sail programs. 

Last year’s auction was a testament to the unwavering dedication and generosity of our members, Learn to Sail families, and local community. Last year, thanks to your generous donations we purchased a new Whaly coach boat, upgraded our fleet of youth boats with a new Zest, Opti race boat and C420, and acquired Quigley, one of our keelboats to support our Adult Basic Cruising program. This year we’re setting a course to acquire additional boats including another Whaly coach boat and sailing equipment to further elevate the sailing experience for our youth and adult sailors and maintain PCYC’s Learn to Sail reputation as a beacon of excellence on the lake.

If you would like to donate big ticket items to our live auction or smaller items for our silent auction please reach out to Program Manager Tristan Bourelle at
