In this course, we introduce children 5 to 8 years old to dinghy sailing. The course is designed to help young children feel at ease on the water and be comfortable in boats. The emphasis is on the sights, sounds, and feel of sailing.
The course is taught by a Senior Instructor and assisted by a group of experienced sailors. The high student-to-instructor ratio not only provides an especially safe environment, but also allows the students to learn efficiently and effectively.
Each day the class is divided up into groups of two or three Little Cat Sailors assigned to one of the Bug dinghies. The Little Cat Sailors learn basic sailing terms, safety, and are taught to assist in rigging the boats. While sailing, the Instructors teach them about the wind, water, and encourage their comfort in sailboats. Daily team-building activities and games are played both on and off the water to further the children?s knowledge and ability to have fun while sailing.
A snack break is provided mid-morning to keep the young sailors nourished and engaged. Please pack a snack for your child.
