Summer Camps

Learn-to-Sail Camp

Every summer we host our Learn-to-Sail camps from June until August. Our course is geared toward fun and learning! We teach the basics of rigging an Optimist pram, basic boat handling, seamanship, sportsmanship, sailing fundamentals and water safety. Instruction is done in Optimists with 2 sailors per boat. Sailors must be at least 8 years old by the start of camp. We utilize sturdy beginner prams that safely fit children up to 100 lbs. Each Learn-to-Sail camp begins with swimming and capsizing activities to acclimate the sailors with the water and their boats.
