About the Class
Boats: Beetles, Typhoons, Rowing.
*3-5 students in a boat together with an instructor.
Pogies are young beginners. Less independent sailors have the option of staying in Typhoons and Beetles with an instructor for a longer period of time. We encourage students to try Optis, but if they don’t want to sail by themselves, they can stay in this class until they’re ready for Optis. Within the class, we can try to break kids up according to age groups –older sailors in one boat, younger ones in another.
Matt Wake - Program Director
We don’t send our kids to sailing class to win trophies. We do it because doing things that are hard are worth doing. We do it because our children should understand the overwhelming power of wind and water and how to harness them. We teach seamanship to impress on them the value of meticulous care, preparation, and technical skill, things that will lead to success in a world of constant and unexpected challenges. And most importantly, sailing is really fun!
