The Coconut Grove Sailing Club is pleased to again offer Summer Youth Sailing Instruction and Camp for both sailing CGSC members and non-members. Student sailors will be classified as either beginner, intermediate, advanced or racing level. A US Sailing certified instructor and several junior instructors supervise the classes.
Campers must be between the ages of 6 to 14 years old.
Sailing Camp runs weekdays from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm and is held rain or shine.  

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 and Sunfish. 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 camaraderie 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 a Type 3 life jacket (personal Floatation Device - PFD).

How to Register - Download and print the Registration Form which must both be completed and mailed to the Club with the adequate payment. Applications are also available in the Club office. Registration opens on March 2, 2015. Applicants are accepted on a first come-first serve basis.
