4-8 weeks

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.

Program Director

I have such fond childhood memories learning how to sail at HPYC and am so excited to return as the Program Director. I am a teacher by trade and have raised 5 children who love sailing. For the past 10 years, I have been at Tabor Academy, where I was selected to revamp their summer sailing program.

I am committed to making our program one that is engaging and fun for the whole HP community. I look forward to meeting the people I don’t know and reconnecting with old friends!
