Classes for ages 8-12 by week


Cells blacked out do not have class that week. Total number of slots in the class is the number inside the cell. Due to high demand, our only available classes are for sailors who have completed at least two weeks of opti camp and are at an "advanced" level. Please do NOT register your child for an advanced class if they do not have prior experience. 

Beginner Opti

Either the full day or half day Beginner Opti classes are perfect for children ages 8-12 who have little to no sailing experience. Sailors who want to control their own boat fit in right here. By the end of the half day week, students will be able to sail and rig their own boat, tie some awesome knots, and know basic sailing terminology. Great for returning and new sailors. This class focuses on:

  • Using games to learn and have a lot of FUN!
  • Setting up and taking apart a boat
  • Teamwork and building friendships
  • Being comfortable in, around, and on the water
  • How to tack, gybe, steer, and trim
