About This Activity

Formerly Intermediate Sailing. Please choose 2 weeks minimum. Whalers will focus on more advanced boathandling skills and will also introduce sailors to racing. Specific skills include the basics of upwind sailing, performance boathandling, and the introduction of some basic racing techniques. As with Mariners, students are broken into two groups: Sky Blue, and Burgee Blue (Advanced Whalers). Our Burgee Blue students are encouraged to participate in All-Island racing such as the GHYC Jobson Cup, Nantucket Junior Race Week, and weekly All-Island afternoon racing. While taught primarily in the Opti, students who are not interested in racing will also have opportunities to sail in the Capris, where our aim is to have 2-4 students competently sail the Capri without an instructor!
