Session G – Beginning Sailing (Youths)
This is a group class for students ages 11 to 14 who are interested in learning to sail. The class is taught on modern 14-ft. single-sail RS Zest dinghies. Students will learn rigging, knots, basic boat handling, points of sail, and capsize/recovery. The course is taught in a fun, mutually supportive environment with a focus on building skills and knowledge with hands-on and on-the-water practice. By the end of the week, sailors will transfer their growing skills to the race course and participate in a series of short races, just for the fun of it!
