Carlyle Sailing Association
Junior Sailing Sessions
Our programs consist of Junior Sailing (Spring), Harbor Mice (Summer), Junior Sailing (Fall) Sessions.
All Sessions are 10:00 am to 4:00 pm--rain or shine/high wind or no wind.
Junior Sailing Spring | Harbor Mice | Junior Sailing Fall | Laser Sessions
The programs emphasize learn-to-sail and practice sail classes. Students will learn to solo sail in the simple, stable, designed Optimist Pram and will also have the opportunity to sail the more high-performance O'pen Skiff. Instructions will include information from the CANVAS online modules, introduce boat rigging, recreational sailing, and safe boating practices.
Juniors with advanced sailing skills will be given the opportunity to learn about advanced boat handling, tactics, and rules while participating in individual racing, match racing, and team racing.
Who should enroll in our Junior Sailing Sessions?
Anyone age 8 to 15, (sailors and non-sailors).
What do students need to bring?
Students must bring their own lunches and snacks as well as a proper fitted life-jacket, water bottle, change of clothes, closed toe water shoes, sun protection and towel. Life-jackets are required, but will be provided for those who don't have one. All other materials for lessons will be provided.
Do we need to own a boat/boats?
No, it is not necessary to own a boat. CSA Junior Sailing has a fleet of Optis and Skiffs. Of course, if you have a Laser, Sunfish, Opti or O'pen Skiff, under the rules of a junior membership, it can be kept at CSA and used in the junior programs.
Are the Instructors qualified?
All lead instructors must be atleast US Sailing Level 1 Small Boat and Safesport Certified. Instructors are also expected to completed First Aid and CPR training annually. Although the goal is to teach students how to sail, safety is their first consideration.
