About This Activity

Our Novice Opti sailors are those who have had little or no previous experience in a boat either rowing, power or sail, and are able swimmers. Some may have completed our Beginners class. Specific sailing knowledge is not required - we will teach you how to sail. PROGRAM: the goal and focus of this level is to help students achieve independent competence with basic sailing skills. Being able to tack, gybe, steer, easy sail trim, and work with others on a sailboat is each student's goal. Once achieved, the student is eligible to move up to Novice Teen or the Intermediate Opti level depending upon age, size or experience. The first week of each session focuses on basic and specific skills to be mastered. The second week uses those skills in some fun activities including scavenger hunt, distance sailing, man-overboard drills, and sailing around buoys. Knots and vocabulary are learned throughout. SAILING: students will use our Optimist sailboats which are specifically designed for this age and level of experience. The Opti is a highly competitive racing boat for youth sailors of all ages.
