Program Dates: Monday, June 26th through Thursday, August 17th

Class Descriptions:

Scallywags: A class for sailors ages 6-8 that are comfortable swimming in deep water without a life jacket. This course is an introduction to sailing where students will learn boats parts, points of sail, rigging, knots, and will be sailing very close to shore.

Beginners: Sailors age 8 or older, who have not sailed before or have very limited sailing experience. This class will learn boats parts, points of sail, rigging, knots, and all aspects of on the water sailing.

Buccaneers: Sailors that have successfully completed Scallywags and are comfortable sailing a boat. We will build on their confidence and ability to sail a boat on their own.

Intermediates 2: Sailors who are able to sail an Opti by themselves comfortably in all wind conditions. We will begin to learn more aspects of racing and be practicing those skills at local opti regattas. It is highly suggested that team members have their own opti.

420 Race Team: Experienced sailors who want to continue to learn more about racing. The race team will be sailing against various local yacht clubs and attend local regattas.
