Accessible, affordable and fun youth sailing camps in the middle of the city.
By the end of the camp each child will have learned how to set up and sail a boat under the instruction of nationally certified instructors.
These camps include land-based and on-the-water education in the Optimist training sailboat. One of the most popular sailboats for youth, the Optimist is easy to learn and sail, even for the youngest child.
