Summer Sailing School

 

The Junior Division is now offering structured group classes to juniors (and adults!) in the Club's Optis, 420s and Flying Scots for nine weeks during the summer.

Take one class or multiple classes to progress your sailing skills in a single summer - our program is designed to increase your sailing comfort level by building experience in a single boat, or learn to sail a new boat.

The classes will be taught by our Sailing Instructors and are taught in Fishing Bay. The lessons are designed to capitalize on small class sizes, and are a great follow up to the group lessons offered during Opti Kids and Junior Week.

Swim Test: All junior (<18 yo) sailors must pass a simple two-part swim test on the first morning of class. First, all sailors will be asked to swim the length of our pool (approximately 75') unassisted, without swim shoes and PFD. Sailors who pass will then be asked to swim to our beach from the end of our pier in Fishing Bay, wearing swim shoes and a PFD.

Lunch and preparations: All sailors must bring their own lunch, a water bottle, PFD and water shoes.   Snacks and sunscreen are also recommended.    Junior sailors must be attended by an adult during the lunch break.

Daily Schedule:

For Juniors: classes begin at 9am, with an hour break near noon for lunch, and ends at 4pm.

For Adults: Classes will run from 1-5pm on Saturday and Sunday
