This class is designed for sailors who have taken Beginning Optimist at least once and demonstrated a good comfort level on the water. Sailors will be placed one or two per boat and will learn to become independent by controlling the sail and steering the boat at the same time. Emphasis will be on improving boat handling skills and confidence under a variety of wind conditions. This class offers new challenges and an exciting sailing experience and will prepare the sailor for the Optimist Racing program if he or she wishes to advance. This is a smaller class that includes more individualized coaching.
If you wish, you can register your child for both morning and afternoon classes. We will avoid repetition of curriculum where possible and we will provide supervision for full-day sailors during the lunch hour.
We hope sailors will move on to the Racing Optimist sailing class when they are ready.
