Beginner Sailing Camp

AUG 22-26, 2022; 9-1 M-F

During learn to sail camp, each day we will progress our skills with the goal of learning basic boat handling by the last day of camp. This camp is for 7-11 year olds up to 90lbs. We will learn in an Optimist. Each day, we will level up on the prior day’s learning in a focused week of learning basic boat handling built atop an introduction to theoretical sailing terms and concepts:
  • wind indicators, rigging, terminology, points of sail
  • posture & line handling
  • double-handed sailing
  • trim double handed; steer double handed
  • steer without a sail
  • put it all together on the final day
Regardless of the wind, we should be able to find a protected and nice area to learn basic beginner sailing. (minimum of 3; Max of 6 sailors).
