These one week classes are focused on fun and learning, with curriculum appropriate for both novice and more experienced recreational sailors. Students are split into two age groups, with equipment and instruction tailored to each group.
We focus on sailing fundamentals, including upwind and downwind sailing, sail trim, knot tying, and sailing terminology. With these skills, sailors will develop the ability to control their boat and adjust to different conditions on the water. Boats for these classes are provided by the school.
Families are welcome to join us on Friday afternoons of each session to watch your sailors in action and for a graduation ceremony to celebrate their learning.
Instructors will suggest the next step for each sailor based on their skills and ability throughout the week. We recommend signing up for two or more Recreational Sailing sessions prior to advancing.
