SUMMER CAMP 2014
What will my child learn? Beginners will learn basic sailing skills, knots, nomenclature, and safety. By the end of the course, beginning sailors will be able to single-hand a pram boat, know the names of all parts of the boat, and know what to do if the boat capsizes.
Intermediate and advance sailors will learn more advanced techniques, racing rules, and explore further into Biscayne Bay.
Boats - Summer Campers will be sailing in our Club Prams, Optimist, Sunfish and Flying Scots. These single-handed and double- handed boats are used for pleasure sailing as well as competition. Sailing small boats is an incredible way to learn sailing, teaching students independence and creating a stronger, more individual character while learning a new sport and building commraderie with fellow sailors. Most important, being responsible for your own boat teaches lessons that stay with kids forever.
Life jackets - All Summer Sailing Campers must bring their own Type 3 Coast Guard approved life jacket and wear them at all times. Parents are encouraged to provide a comfortable life jacket that fits well the duration of sailing and dock exposure.
Clothing, lunches, and water - Campers should be bring their own lunch/refillable water bottle. Campers should wear bathing suits each day under their clothing. Don't forget the sunscreen, hats, towel, water shoes, change of clothes and the Type 3 life jacket (personal Floatation Device - PFD).
