LEARN TO SAIL(or “L2S”) Formerly known as our “Beginners” program, this program will consist of 10 full-day class sessions over two consecutive weeks. This class is designed for kids aged 8-17, who have limited to no experience sailing.

We use the “Start Sailing Right” curriculum by US Sailing and the American Red Cross. Topics will include: water safety, parts of a sailboat, rigging a sailboat, basic knot tying, wind propulsion, and basic sailing from point A to point B.

The L2S curriculum will be offered 3 times this summer, each with a class size limited to 12 seats/session.

Prerequisites: life vest and ability to swim/pass swim test and a desire to go sailing.
