Students in the Beginner Youth Sailing Program will develop confidence on and off the water, gain familiarity with fundamental sailing skills, wind and sea awareness, and enhance their respect for a clean ocean. Students will also learn safety skills such as rules of the road, capsize recovery, overboard recovery, and safety position. They will learn the standard skills of jibing, tacking, steering, getting out of iron, and points of sail. Students begin sailing in our BUGS, and, when ready, progress to sailing single-handed. This self-paced class may take up to two years to build a foundation and progress into mastery of general sailing skills.
