This program is for young sailors of all abilities ages 8-15. There will be 6 Saturday Sessions 10:00 am to 4:00 pm rain or shine. During the Whale of a Sail (Saturday September 14 and Sunday September 15) the Juniors compete with their peers in the event on a separate race course set safely away from the big boats.
Students will meet each morning in the Junior Classroom, (lower level OB). 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 REACH program, introduce boat rigging, recreational sailing, and safe boating practices. This year our sailboat fleet has expanded to include the popular Sunfish class and the Hobie Wave catamaran as well as access to big boats from the CSA rental fleet.
Students who own their own boats, Lasers and Sunfish are encouraged to participate in the education and on-the-water exercises. Instructions will include beginner level to advanced racing for those who desire to travel and compete in regattas.
