The OBC’s Beginner sailing program is a weekday, morning program from 9 AM until 12 PM for 8-12 year olds. It includes formal group sailing lessons aboard our fleet of Opti dinghies. This session is designed for children with minimal or no previous sailing experience, with the goal of helping all participants become comfortable and knowledgeable while sailing. Instruction includes basic sailing skills, parts of the boat, rigging, capsize recovery, basic navigation, and knots. It is intended to provide the opportunity for discovery, learning, and play in a dynamic nautical environment. In addition to nautical skills, the program encourages children to develop characteristics such as team work, self-reliance, and responsibility through activities on and off the water. Participants are required to be comfortable in open water while wearing a lifejacket.

Cost: $125 with scholarships available
