Youth Sailing is our most popular course and is for kids ages 9-15. The classes are taught to sail Optimist sailing dinghies by instructors certified by the United States Sailing Association. The class sizes are small so kids of all ability levels can get a solid foundation in sailing.

Students learn to sail on Lake Wentworth, where they learn the basics of handling a boat, tying knots, and sailing. They also get to sing a sea shanty or two and make new friends. And on Fridays there will be an optional Free Sail Friday from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm.

You can choose one of three class levels: beginner, intermediate, or advanced.

To take the class, students must pass a swimming test. If you want to take the intermediate or advanced class, you must have previous sailing experience. On the first day of class, you will be tested to make sure you’re in the right level class.
