About This Activity

The Opti Beginner class is for children who have little to no sailing experience, including (but not required) those who have taken the Sea Urchin class. Sailors are taught in small groups in Dyer Dhow and Optimist dinghies. Students will learn boat rigging, points of sail, basic sail trim, and boat safety. There will be both on and off water instruction. There is no prerequisite for Opti Beginners. This class has a hands on learn-to-sail focus. When complete, the sailor will be able to demonstrate basic helm, trim, and water awareness skills. The sailor will be able to identify the major parts of a sailboat and sail a boat from point A to point B. This class is best for children who are 8 years old and have some familiarity with sailing, as well as new sailors age 9-11.
