This fun program for kids ages 6 - 8 is designed to promote comfort in and around the water, as well as water safety. They will spend time rowing and learning about basic boat handling, parts of the boat, and knots. We will introduce concepts related to sailing, and they will have a chance to sail with instructors. Ages 6-8. Cost - $125
For kids 10 - 13 that are new to sailing, a quick intro to the concepts and skills used in sailing. They will learn to rig a sailboat, learn sailing concepts and spend time in a sailboat with an instructor. After completing this course, the kids will be ready to join an afternoon sailing session. Ages 10 - 13. Cost - $100
Our goal in this class is to learn and then expand on fundamentals. For beginner sailors we teach basic sailing skills including: how sails work, rigging, boat handling (tacking and jibing), balance, steering, and knots. As the students acquire experience and confidence, we will introduce capsize recovery and man overboard techniques, while continuing to work with knots, wind and weather awareness. Ages 9 - 13, Cost - $275
Intermediate sailors will continue to work on their understanding and mastery of sailing fundamentals and boat handling. These include rigging, boat handling, knots and racing concepts. Intermediate students will sail with an instructor or experienced skipper, and advanced students will gain experience skippering. Ages 11 - 15, Cost - $275
Optional racing sessions will be offered during each session. More information will be provided at the start of each session.
