What's Included

Intended for our slightly older students who are brand new to sailing, or have minimal experience, "Mariners" will primarily be taught in Prams and Optis, although other craft may be used from time to time. Mariners will differ from our traditional beginner sailing class, taught in Hunter 140s, in that each student will sail alone (or in a pair) in a Pram or Opti, and an instructor will instruct students from an accompanying skiff. Instruction will be on self-rescue and water safety, and on building students' confidence by way of traditional lesson plans. The same basic skills taught in our beginner Hunter Class will be taught in this class, although students will be expected to be slightly more independent, self-reliant, and have a stronger ability to follow direction and instruction.

About This Organizer

Nantucket Community Sailing believes the skill of sailing fosters confidence, independence, teamwork, sportsmanship and a unique opportunity to interact with others and learn out on the water.  Though we love to have fun, our priority is safety and proper instruction on and off the water.
