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.  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 five-day 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.

We also offer one-day introductory courses to the Opti.
