Topics that will be covered in this class are the basics of sailing which include points of sail, tacking, gybing, capsizing and recovery, rigging, launching off the beach and coming back in safely, as well as sail trim and weight balance in the boat. More advanced sailing information will be added as we see fit for each individual and class. If you are unsure whether your child would love and/or thrive in this class please reach out to us as we are excited to challenge children but need to make sure that kids are comfortable and excited to participate. firstname.lastname@example.org Some age exceptions may be made to allow participation. Children must have significant & successful O’Pen Skiff sailing experience. Contact Meg Myles to discuss: (CISFSailing@gmail.com) *Children will capsize in the O'Pen Skiff, so participants must be ok with that, as well as be good swimmers.
