For: Beginner Opti graduates or sailors with prior Opti experience

The Intermediate Optimist program is for sailors with experience in the Optimist dinghy.  Participants must come into this program knowing the basics such as rigging the boat, how to sit in the proper position, and basic sailing knots (figure-8 and square knots).  Participants will work toward improving their skills in tacking, gybing, sailing upwind and downwind, and learning basic rules of the road.  This is a 2-week, full-day program intended to provide the skills for participants to move up to Green Fleet, or just improve upon their sailing skills in general. Successful completion of the Optimist Beginner program is a prerequisite for this program (but may be waived at the discretion of the Junior Program Director).

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

  • Sunscreen

  • Lunch & snacks

  • Reusable water bottle
