The US Sailing certified instructors provide a safe and fun learning environment promoting teamwork and camaraderie on and off the water The first day of each " Learn-to-sail" camp week, students will participate in a capsize drill to teach self-rescuing and staying with the boat.

Participants: Teens (ages 12 to 16) 115 lbs or over and over 5 ft tall. Designed for students who have completed basic "Learn-to-Sail" courses or are able to learn on larger and faster boats as both skipper and crew. The focus is on boat handling, sail trimming, and working as a team. This class works well for those that have become too big to comfortably sail in the singlehanded Dewitt sailboats.
