Expired Opti Explorer Session 9 – 2021

This is the place to start your child’s love of sailing. Sailed around the world, the Opti is the go-to class for junior sailors. Meet every day Monday-Friday from 9:00-3:30. Sailors will learn on-the-water safety, rigging, steering, knots, and more! The end of the week goal is for your student to have a basic understanding of the mechanics of driving and sailing a boat. Each session is designed to get your child comfortable and confident in an Opti.  This course can be taken multiple times.  Each week your sailor builds upon the fundamentals of sailing.

Every student will receive:

  • The annual Saint Croix Sailing School T-Shirt.
  • The Little Red Book.  The Little Red Book is US Sailing’s certification system.  As sailors progress, instructors will sign off on the skills mastered.
