First time students begin sailing the first day of camp after an orientation, which includes basic shore instruction, an introduction to our fleet, and a swim test. On the water, we start with how to steer and tack, and then add skills and concepts quickly. Knot tying, boat rigging and safety essentials are incorporated along the way. Experienced and continuing students receive instruction tailored to their sailing level with an emphasis on time on the water and fun exercises and excursions.
Our Instructors and Philosophy
Our team of Instructors has years of experience in Junior sailing programs as students, instructors and coaches. They have wholeheartedly embraced our community-based, non-competitive teaching philosophy.
