Summer Camps

Each summer we host our Learn-to-Sail camps. With the US sailing mantra of Safety, fun and Learning in mind we take complete beginners and turn them into fully fledged sailors. During one of our week long sessions budding captains will learn the ins and outs of rigging, boat handling, seamanship, and water safety. Young  skippers will take command of our fleet of Optimists and learn to sail across the beautiful waters of Tampa Bay.

Sailors must be at least 8 years old by the start of camp and confident swimming 25 yards. We train our young sailors in Optimist dinghies; 8 foot boats with a world wide following and racing scene. Each Learn-to-Sail camp begins with safety drills where we will be checking swimming ability and learning to recover from a capsize.
