2023 Fall Sailing: Weekend Sailing (8-12 yrs) Aug/Sep

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.

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
