Youth Keelboat Sailing
Note: This is a half-day class, 5 days: Monday – Friday from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm. (Ages 8-12 years)
For youth sailors who have completed a basic dinghy sailing class and are ready for a different kind of adventure! On-the-water instruction takes place in J/24s. Students will hone their basic sailing skills and practice sailing as part of a team. They will experience more of Bellingham Bay as we cruise around the bay, learning anchoring, tacking, gybing, and crew overboard recovery. We will also practice reading the weather, basic navigation, rules of the road and how to plan for day sail. Camps will be lead by our fun and safety-focused US Sailing certified instructors. Students will complete a swim evaluation prior to beginning sailing camp.
Camp is from 9am to 1pm. Registration Deadline is at 5:00 p.m. the Friday before the week of the class.
