POLLYWOGS (ages 6-8)No experience required! This is an introduction learn to sail program. Sailors learn in a sailing cube with a buddy and are introduced to the basics of sailing while having fun on the water.

Benefits to an early learn to sail program is to challenge the cognitive abilities of young children. Building independence and confidence while introducing them to boats and various water activities.

Goals for this course are to learn basic sailing terms: safety, parts of the boats, capsize/recovery, steering, basic knots, and of course having fun!

Cost: $250/sailor

Sailors MUST be able to swim 50 yards.  A swim test will be giving the first day.

·       Refillable Water Bottle

·       Snack (No refrigeration is available on site)
