Event Information

Description

Ages 9-12 (the top end age cut-off is not strictly enforced, if your sailor has grown fast, feel free to reach out and see if the Beginner Teen Class is a better fit)

Designed as a fun and exciting introduction to small sailboats.This is for sailors that are newer to sailing. In this class sailors start off with a partner in the boat and progress to sailing the boat on their own. Sailors learn about points of sail, tacking, parts of the boat, knots, and proper sail trim. Sailors stay in this class until they exhibit such skills as tacking with all the proper steps and being able to dock and launch independently.

Students should come dressed in their swim suit, and wear closed toed shoes. We will provide wetsuits, helmets, and lifejackets. 

Students should bring a refillable water bottle and sun protection including; sunglasses and hat.
