Junior Week, June 22nd through June 26th, is for Juniors age 6 to 18 and consists of five days of sailing instruction in the following classes: Beginning Opti, Advanced Beginner Opti, Intermediate Opti I, II, & III, Racing Opti, Advanced Racing Opti, 420 Racing, Laser Radial Racing, and Group Sailing (for teens who wish to sail with crew).  New for 2015 is Beginning Lasers.  Junior Week is a great way for Juniors to kick-off their sailing season, with lots of on- and off-the-water instruction, hanging with their friends and spending time with their parents! Juniors completing Opti Kids who want to continue their training may participate in Beginning Opti.
