Junior O'pen Bic
Save the date: JA Awards Dinner & Dance, will be held August 22, 2013 @ 6pm
O'PEN BIC: Starting June 24, 2013
**Must supply your own O'pen Bic boat**
Starting in 2013 we will have 2 choices of BIC Classes: BIC Race team and BIC Development. Separate classes for BIC Race Team and BIC Development will be offered according to enrollment.
BIC RACE TEAM: These weeks will be targeted towards those who have sailed the O'PEN BIC previously (or have suitable experience), can handle a more focused experience, and are working on refining their racing and/or freestyle skills. Instructor approval is necessary, and this will be targeted at the old BIC sailor.
BIC DEVELOPMENT: CAN SAIL Level 1 completion (White Sail 2) is required, or you must have instructor approval. This class will focus on developing the basic BIC skills, allowing the sailors to become more comfortable with singlehanded sailing. Focus on FUN!
