    *Skill levels are assessed on the first day of camp. If your child has not participated in our Sail Team program or does not have racing experience, their first week of camp needs to be in Opti I. If it is determined that your child needs to be in a different group, you will be notified. 

    Each sailor will receive their Sail Camp shirt on Thursday afternoon pick-up. Friday is Sail Camp shirt day - every camper should wear their shirt all day.
