Instruction is geared to all levels of sailors, with special emphasis on beginners. After each participant is assessed on basic skills, including swim test and capsize, the sailor will be placed into an appropriate instructional group & boat. Curriculum is based on US Sailing’s Learn Sailing Right for Beginner and Intermediate sailors. Sailors are provided with a one-year US Sailing membership that includes the SKILL Up app.
It is recommended that ages 8-11 register for the (A) 8:30-11:30 session and ages 12-15 register for the (B) 9:30-12:30 session. Families with children in both age groups can be accommodated.
