Sailing Discovery

Sailing Discovery is a course geared towards sailors who are not yet ready to jump into a full week program but would like to give sailing a try. During the three-day program, Certified US Sailing instructors introduce basic sailing principles. Splitting their time between land discussions and on the water practice, sailors gain knowledge in setting up a sailboat, sailing terminology, and the ability to sail across the wind. After completion of this course, sailors who want to continue building their sailing skills are encouraged to sign up for an Opti or C420 Explorer course.

This course is for ages 12-17.  For ages 8-12, see the Opti Sailing Discovery course.
Prerequisite: None!

Wednesday Night Racing

Test your sailing skills every Wednesday evening starting June 3rd, 2020. SCSS will host (and provide boats) for an evening small boat racing series. This series is open to any sailor who has taken past classes at SCSS or can pass a basic sailing skills test.  This race series is all about improving your sailing skills in a fun, low pressure, race environment.

Never raced before? Don’t let that hold you back. Our instructors will go over the basic rules of the road and starting sequence. The number one goal of this program is to give you the opportunity to improve your sailing skills in a structured, non competitive, environment.

Wednesday night racing is for sailors of all ages who have some experience sailing. If you are unsure if you qualify, click here to contact us.
