    Monday to Friday 9:00am to 3:00pm

     

         

     

      

    Sail Camp - 420/Laser is designed for an older age group. The 420 sailboat is a double-handed, heavier and more challenging boat, and the Laser is a larger, single-handed and much more challenging boat than an Opti. Both boats require a larger body size and weight, making them perfect boats for teens. This program can accommodate all skill levels - beginner, intermediate and advanced sailors welcome. Sailors will also experience sailing on our Hobie Cats and Flying Scot sailboats. By the end of the week, your child will learn these skills:

    • Parts of the boat
    • Rigging/de-rigging
    • Capsize and recovery
    • Steering, body positioning, and sailing mechanics
    • Skipper and crew roles/responsibilities
    • Launching and docking
    • Points of sail and sail trim
    • How to tack and gybe (and fly a spinnaker if skill level allows)
    • Basic rules of the road
    • Beach landing and safety position
    • Proper cleaning and stowing of sailing equipment

    While daily Sail Camp structure varies by program, your child will have two on-water sessions per day, including swim breaks, snack breaks, a lunch break, and daily knot tying sessions before dismissal.

    *420/Laser participants must be 13 - 17 and must weigh a minimum of 110lbs. If your child is 13-15 and does not meet these requirements, please register them for the older Opti beginner group. For safety reasons, the only exceptions to this policy is previous sailing or racing experience in a 420 or Laser.

    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.

    Monday to Friday 9:00am to 3:00pm

     

         

     

      

    Sail Camp - 420/Laser is designed for an older age group. The 420 sailboat is a double-handed, heavier and more challenging boat, and the Laser is a larger, single-handed and much more challenging boat than an Opti. Both boats require a larger body size and weight, making them perfect boats for teens. This program can accommodate all skill levels - beginner, intermediate and advanced sailors welcome. Sailors will also experience sailing on our Hobie Cats and Flying Scot sailboats. By the end of the week, your child will learn these skills:

    • Parts of the boat
    • Rigging/de-rigging
    • Capsize and recovery
    • Steering, body positioning, and sailing mechanics
    • Skipper and crew roles/responsibilities
    • Launching and docking
    • Points of sail and sail trim
    • How to tack and gybe (and fly a spinnaker if skill level allows)
    • Basic rules of the road
    • Beach landing and safety position
    • Proper cleaning and stowing of sailing equipment

    While daily Sail Camp structure varies by program, your child will have two on-water sessions per day, including swim breaks, snack breaks, a lunch break, and daily knot tying sessions before dismissal.

    *420/Laser participants must be 13 - 17 and must weigh a minimum of 110lbs. If your child is 13-15 and does not meet these requirements, please register them for the older Opti beginner group. For safety reasons, the only exceptions to this policy is previous sailing or racing experience in a 420 or Laser.

    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.

    *420/Laser participants must be 13 - 17 and must weigh a minimum of 110lbs. If your child is 13-15 and does not meet these requirements, please register them for the older Opti beginner group.
