What's Included

The Adventure Sailing program is a new program for juniors who want to explore the many different aspects of sailing besides racing. It is intended for juniors who have completed the intermediate sailing programs and are very comfortable sailing on their own. We will play around with as many types of boats as we can get our hands on such as keelboats, multihulls and a variety of dinghys. We'll cover a wide range of sailing skills related to day sailing and cruising including motoring, docking, anchoring, navigation skills, and mostly just sailing for the fun of it. Wherever possible we will adjust the curriculum to accommodate the interests of the kids. The program will run throughout the season and includes a a full week of sailing from July 20th - 24th. The group will also meet on Thursday evenings throughout the summer from July 2nd through August 20th. We understand that not everybody is able to make every session in a season long program given vacations, other commitments, etc. We try to offer a wide range of times so that all the juniors can get on the water regularly. If there is enough interest, we do intend to offer an optional field trip at the end of the season where we will take the kids sailing on Lake Champlain on chartered "big boats" (i.e boats in the 40 foot range). This would be an additional cost for those students interested in going. As this is our first year offering this course, we will work closely with the parents to work out the field trip details.
