For: Brand new sailors!
This half-day class will teach the basics of sailing, but is primarily geared towards having fun and getting young sailors comfortable on the water in boats. Participants will learn how to steer a boat, rig a boat, basic points of sail, rules of the road, basic sailing knots, and how to recover after a capsize. There will be a lot of fun games and team activities integrated into this class. Participants will be sailing McLaughlin Sail Cubes (similar to an Optimist dinghy), and will start two to a boat, with the goal to sail by themselves by the end of the session!
Participants will need to bring the following things to camp every day, clearly labeled with their name:
PFD/Life Jacket (Coast Guard Approved) with whistle
Closed-toed shoes that can get wet
Change of clothes & towel
Sunglasses & hat
Lunch & snacks
Reusable water bottle
