This class is geared for students under 100 pounds and 8 or older who are beginners in sailing personal sailboats. Beginner Opti students will be expected to work on sailing without a partner. Completing the course means that your student can sail independently (including upwind tacking), take direction on the water, understand the sailing code of conduct, and use correct boat handling techniques.
The Opti is a one-person boat. You can read about it here: Optimist Dinghy Two consecutive weeks is what we suggest to complete this course. This is a great class for most beginners and is made to safely get 8-13 year-olds sailing on their own!
The daily schedule is 9:00 to 4:00 Monday to Friday
