Drop-in Sailing (All Ages) - July 15 - 19
In between sessions but looking for more time on the water? Our coaches will be available for a week of sailing and fun on the water. Sailors can sail the Club’s J/22s, O’pen Bics, 420s, Optis, and windsurfers for an extra week of fun.

Kinder Sailing (Ages 5 and 6) - July 15 - 19 (half day AM only)
This new week-long session is a perfect sailing introduction for those who love the water but aren’t old enough yet for our Learn to Sail program. Our instructors will use the sailing simulator and the Club’s J/22s to get our smallest sailors comfortable on the water. This session will cover basic sailing concepts and water safety.
