About This Activity

The object of this class is to introduce younger children to sailing, familiarize them with being on and around the water, to help make them comfortable and confident in a boat and to have a ton of fun while doing it. Participants will learn the very basics of boat handling - boat parts, rowing, steering with a tiller, trimming a sail and boat safety, with an emphasis on having fun in a boat. There will be both on and off water instruction. Students will sail in the 9-foot Dyer Dhow dinghies as well as the 19-foot Rhodes 19s and will be tightly supervised throughout the session. When the class is complete, the new sailor will be able to identify the primary parts of a sailboat, demonstrate basic helming skills, and be comfortable in a boat. This class is best for 8 year old children who are unfamiliar with sailing and are looking for their very first sailing experience.
