Your kids can, have fun, and learn to sail right at your doorstep!

Children will learn the basics of sailing in a unique environment focusing on fun and boating safety. Launching, docking, steering, balancing, and propulsion are just some of the activities covered both on and off the water.

Seven-foot Optimist sailboats as well as two-person kayaks will be used in the program. By the end of the course, students will be able to safely sail and kayak on their own! In addition to these skills, the program develops confidence and leadership in its participants.
