Who should take this course? New, novice and intermediate sailors, ages 8-18. Students will use OLSS sailboats – one of our International Optimist Dinghy’s (IOD) or “420” sailboats (depending upon student size and experience)
What if my child has some sailing experience? Instructors are conscious of varied levels of experience and arrange students into various levels (IOD solo, IOD crew, 420 Crew, 420 Skipper, X-boat Crew, W skipper) to accommodate all levels of learning.
What will my child learn? To start, our US Sailing Certified instructors will introduce material in a classroom setting before heading out to spend the majority of the session on the water. While on the water, sailors will receive group and one-on-one coaching to improve skills and sense of confidence on the water. As the class grows and learns together the instructors may introduce more advanced activities.
What do we need to bring? Students must bring their own water and snacks as well as a lifejacket, change of clothes, water shoes and towel.
