Learn to Sail Ages 12-17

Our Flying Junior learn-to-sail series teaches kids from age 12-17 how to sail and gain confidence and teamwork skills by sailing and crewing on doublehanded boats.

On the first day of all youth camps, instructors will conduct swim checks and capsize drills for all participants. The swim check consists of swimming a minimum of 20 feet without a life jacket, briefly treading water, and then putting on a lifejacket in the water. Lifejackets are worn throughout the duration of camp while participants are on the water. The capsize drill consists of instructors teaching participants how to correctly capsize and recover an anchored boat. All sailors must complete the swim check and capsize drill in order to participate in camp.
