JUNIOR SAILING: This course is for students ages 8-15 and is designed for both new and returning sailors. Some lessons will be held inside the sailing classroom, while hands-on boat-handling and sailing classes will be taught using our fleet of International Optimist and Sunfish dinghies. New students will work toward earning a basic sailing certificate, while return sailors will hone their skills. The class follows the US Sailing Small Boat Sailor Program, where students work to complete the “Red Book” which documents their sailing skills. Practice for a few years at this level may be required for sailors to complete their Red Books, earn their basic sailing certificate, and be ready to enter our Advanced Sailing Program.
Due to the limited number of spaces available in the Junior Sailing program, the Museum must restrict registrations to one session per student. Additional sessions may be requested on registration forms, and sailors will be notified one week before the start of a session if the request for an additional course can be accommodated.
