What's Included

Students should be over 100 pounds This course is designed to introduce students to a larger class of boat, 420s, which consists of a skipper and a crew. The boat is best sailed by students over 95 lbs and with previous experience in Opti sailing. This course though is also appropriate for older novice students who are too large to begin their sailing experience in Optimists (in this case, both age and size of the novice should be discussed with the Manager during registration). Curriculum will focus on rigging, efficient sailing, upwind and downwind sailing, and boat handling.

About This Organizer

Welcome to QSC

The Quassapaug Sailing Center, a non-profit educational institution, offers sailing lessons under the watchful eyes of certified instructors; hosts Snipe Fleet 231 racing; and opportunities for open water swimming.

QSC is located on beautiful Lake Quassapaug in Middlebury, Connecticut. Lake Quassapaug is a mountaintop, spring-fed lake with a motorboat speed limitation of 5 mph. The lake's unique characteristics and moderate winds make it an ideal location for sail training.

Our sailing programs develop competent sailors that can use their developing "lifetime" skills for small boat racing, pleasure, or large boat sailing in coastal waters.

We have recently made improvements to the Sailing School curriculum due to its growing enrollment. http://www.qsailingcenter.org
