2023 Summer: Weekend Optimist Sailing (8-12 yrs)


2023 Summer Weekend Sailing

We hope that your beginner clinic left you wanting to sail throughout the summer. Join us on Saturday Mornings to have fun, practice, and level up your sailing skills. We will sail out of the sailing center into the arena, do drills, practice scrimmages, etc. Weekend sailing is for sailors who have already completed beginner sailing and have mastered Beginner I skills in rigging and basic boat handling.

  • Ages 8-12; Optimist Sailing
  • Includes registration and boat charter
  • 5 sessions of 3hr practice for a total of 15hrs coaching time on the water
  • Dates: June 24; July 1, 8, 15, 22
  • Time: 9am-12pm
  • Mandatory Orientation Meeting: Thursday June 22nd, 5pm

Pre-requisite: This session of sailing is for sailors who have had some experience sailing Optimist or Sunfish before. If you are not sure if you qualify to sign up, use the interest form and set up an evaluation session with our coaches. You must pass swim test and have mastered boat rigging, launching, and basic boat handling to register for these practice sessions.  If you’d like to set up private lessons to get up to speed, please attend a learn to sail camp or arrange for private lessons

Practice Time: We will meet for 5 weekends each Saturday morning leading up to the Manteo Regatta. Our club has a new boat leasing policy and code of conduct which we will review in orientation. We hope that you will join us and participate in the Manteo Regatta as part of our Hatteras Community Sailing green team.
