Intermediate Opti Camp
August 21 - August 25$410
Intermediate Opti camp is a good fit for sailors who are familiar with topics introduced in the Youth Beginner camp, and introducing increasingly advanced concepts. The goal by the end of camp is to have all sailors comfortable sailing both upwind and downwind in medium breeze.
Monday, August 21, to Friday, August 25, 2017
9:30am-4pm (9-9:30 am drop off; 4-4:30pm pick up)
Prerequisite: Youth Beginner (or equivalent)
First Day of Camp
Bring your signed Liability Waiver.
We will welcome the kids with an orientation. Safety is our priority and an orientation will be followed by a required swim evaluation and capsize exercise (flipping the boat over and righting it) right near the dock. Our instructors oversee and explain both of these activities beforehand.
- Swim Evaluation: The swim evaluation consists of participants swimming 20 feet alongside the dock without a life jacket and briefly treading water.
- Capsize Test: The capsize test will be later in the afternoon and teaches kids how to right an Opti, in the event it capsizes.
Every Day of Camp
Students should arrive prepared each day of camp. Non-cotton fabrics are highly recommended, as they dry quickly, do not hold water, and keep kids comfortable.
- Swim suit & towel
- Complete change of clothes (fleece, T-shirt , pants, raincoat, socks)
- Sunblock (at least 30 SPF)
- Water Bottle
- Closed-Toed Shoes
- Hat and Sunglasses that you are willing to lose
- Life Jacket (we have a number to borrow)
- Snack & Lunch
Please do not bring ANY electronics (cell phones, I-pods, I-anything) as they can be damaged by salt water and we cannot be responsible for their loss.
