what you need to know --

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.

Have Questions?

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 at least 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.
