Designed for children ages 4 – 7 years old as an introduction to the fundamentals of sailing including basic boating, water safety, parts of the boat, rigging, steering basics, knots and wind awareness.  The program is conducted in Optimists (OPTIs) – a one-person, eight foot pram which is both safe and durable.  These boats provide a fun and safe

environment where kids can learn and develop safe boating skills.  A parent or buddy is required to participate in the program to aid in the child’s progression both on land and on the water.

Instruction provided by US Sailing certified instructors with a focus on safety, learning and FUN.
