Learn to Sail Level 1

More information  Registration

Kids with little to no previous sailing experience complete our Learn to Sail 1.  This class is designed to give the sailor a strong fundamental base of sailing skills such as rigging, points of sail, basic boat handling, water safety, and seamanship. The overall goal is to help the sailor get comfortable sailing solo in varying conditions and becoming proficient sailing the Sabot, Optimist, Open Skiff or CFJ. As the sailor gains more confidence sailing they will advance to Learn to Race – Level 2.
