Monday, July 30 - Thursday, August 2, 2018

Due to high demand for OptiKids and Beginning Opti during Junior Week, we are offering a second session for beginning Opti sailors called August OptiWeek The session will run July 30-August 2, 2018, and will be for sailors aged 6-10.

The class will be taught by our professional coaching staff. Students will sail double-handed in Optis, and will learn capsize recovery, “tiller towards trouble”, the “no-go zone”, and the basics of sail trim and how to steer with a rudder, as well as finding the wind, tacking and gybing, and more advanced concepts such as sailing alone. The class may be divided on the bases of age and prior experience, so that all may learn in an appropriate and fun environment.  FBYC will provide the Optis used in this class.

In addition to being geared to novice sailors, the class is open to any junior who has completed Opti Kids and/or Beginner Opti during Junior Week, and who is seeking additional instruction and time on the water.
