SPRING 2021 SAILING PROGRAM

Classes

Novice courses are taught in the Topper, intermediate courses are taught in the el toro, and racing courses are taught in the Laser and 420. It is common for students to take more than one of the same courses as new skills are presented in each session. 

Novice class meets Monday thru Friday from 9 am - 12 pm and the racing class meets in the afternoons from 1 - 4 pm. Sessions run thru June and July. 

Safety

Students are required to provide their own U.S. Coast Guard Approved Personal Flotation Device. The Type III PFD is the most popular and most appropriate for small boat sailing. Students like them.
