Young sailors ages 7 to 16 will learn to sail using Lido 14 dinghies. In Level 1 and Level 2 students will learn and practice the basic concepts of sailing including points of sail, tacking and jibing, water safety, basic terminology, parts of the boat, capsize recovery and knots. Students will work in teams to rig, sail and de-rig the boat. Games and drills on the water combined with a little classroom work wil help teach the basics and set everyone on a course to become safe and confident sailors.
In Level 3 we will explore the forces at work in and around the boat with science related, hands-on learning and fun activities from boat building to navigation and sailing adventures. Sailing offers a myriad of opportunities to balance learning and fun in a dynamic way with students building confidence and self-esteem while having fun enjoying the outdoors.
Students will be grouped by age to provide the best learning experience for everyone.
Gear & Stuff: We recommend students bring a jacket, hat, change of clothes, towel, sunscreen and snack daily.
