Opti Kids: Ages 7-10

This is an all day, 2 day per week class. This class is for sailors who are beginner optimist sailors. Students sail in TYC Optimist dinghies. Students in this class must be able to swim. The emphasis of this two-day per week class is the introduction to sailing and to help the participant become comfortable in a small boat.  Skills that will be emphasized include: - safety on the water - the proper use of a life jacket - what to do if your boat capsizes or if someone falls overboard - how to recognize a dangerous situation.  Skills that will be introduced are boating terminology - boat handling and maneuvering skills - rigging and de-rigging a boat - basic boat care and maintenance. These skills are taught both on and off the water using a variety of fun activities. At the end of the program, each sailor should be able to steer a boat on his or her own. The groundwork in this program is important to building a high level of confidence in the beginning sailor.  This class is limited to 18 students and runs from 9am-4pm Tuesdays and Thursdays.
