Prerequisite: Ability to swim 50 yards.
Celebrate the end of a long day at school with a fun afternoon on the water. New and returning sailors ages 7 to 13 will build sailing skills and gain confidence on the water while sailing OCC’s Lido 14 dinghies on Newport Harbor. New sailors will learn water safety, rigging, parts of the boat, basic boat handling and knots. Returning sailors will focus on boat handling including balance and team work, sail trim and improving their tacking and jibing skills. Longer harbor sails, fun short course racing, games and drills will help tie it all together.
Sailors should bring seasonal layered clothing, a change of clothes (just in case!), a towel, hat and a snack each day.
