Beginner Learn to Sail (Youth)

Note: This is a half-day class, 5 days: Monday – Friday from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm. (Ages 8-12 years)

No sailing experience is required for our beginning sailing classes! On-the-water instruction takes place in Optimist dinghies and RS Teras. Students will learn how to rig and launch a sailing dinghy and understand the three points of sail (upwind, reaching, and downwind). We will also introduce tacking, gybing, docking, capsizing, and crew overboard recovery. Camps will be taught by our fun and safety-focused US Sailing certified instructors, with a ratio of 1 instructor for every 4 students. Students will complete a swim evaluation prior to beginning sailing camp and should be strong swimmers to ensure safety.

Camp is from 9am to 1pm. Registration Deadline is at 5:00 p.m. the Friday before the week of the class.
