Our beginner adult sailing program starts September 7th. No sailing experience required. Participants will learn basic helming skills such as steering, points of sail, docking, rigging, upwind & downwind sailing and tacking in addition to boat safety, sail theory and knots. All participants will be sailing a 420, a 13ft sloop-rigged dinghy, perfect for learning and a great precursor to keel boat sailing and club membership.
This one week program is designed for girls only aged 7 to 10. The program is similar to Junior Sailing, however it places an emphasis on encouraging the participation of younger girls in sailing and physical activity.
July 15-19, Aug 5-9
