A1. Opti Learn to Sail (Wet Feet)

***At this time we remain optimistic that we will run all summer programming as planned. If any programs are cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic, you will receive a FULL REFUND***

For kids aged 7-9, this course is offered in two-week sessions, Monday to Friday 9:00 am to 4:00 pm during July and August; drop off starts at 8:30. This is an introduction to sailing for the young child with no previous experience. In stable, sturdy Optimist dinghies (designed specifically for beginners), sailors learn basic steering and sail control skills in a small-group environment. Off the water, instructors teach the points of sail, boat parts, and weather and safety information through games and interactive lessons. Highlights of this program include surprise theme days and excursions to the beach. This program emphasizes safety, fun, and learning, and provides ideal preparation for CANSail 1 & 2.
