  • Students must be swimmers and pass a swim test on first day.  Fee will be returned for any youth who fails this test.

  • For the more experienced sailors, we will concentrate on honing sailing skills and racing techniques.
  • For novices, we concentrate on teaching basic sailing skills, tying knots, learning Optimist Sailing Dinghy’s rigs, and building confidence.
