Junior White Sail
White Sail is the second step in the sailing sequence, after completion of Wet Feet program (2016 Optimist program). Older children (ages 10+) without Wet Feet sailing experience and children under 10 years old with multiple weeks of Wet Feet (2016 Optimist program) experience may be considered in this program. Generally, sailors spend a minimum of four weeks in each step of the White Sail sequence, depending on skill level. 

White Sail Intro:
This is for the beginner sailor, ages 10+. Basic sailing skills will be taught with an emphasis on FUN! We will cover nomenclature, safety, rigging, crewing and also introduce steering. We will emphasize and foster a love of sailing and waterfront activities, which will translate easily into sailing skills. Please see your child's sailing instructor to help determine when your child is ready to move up to White Sail Intermediate, as this will vary on an individual basis. Sailors will follow the CANSail 1 curriculum.
