Generally, children 8 through 12 are in Opti’s and older, experienced students are in 420’s. Exceptions may be considered based on size, age and skill at the instructor’s discretion. Children must be 8 years old by August 31 to participate.

BEGINNER OPTI CLASS (morning session): The beginner class is for students who have little or no experience on the water. Course includes basics of rigging a boat, sailing fundamentals, basic boat handling, seamanship (knots, weather, etc.), water safety and sportsmanship. Students may participate in Junior Regattas in Opti/Open Bics. Must be 8 years old or older. 

INTERMEDIATE OPTI CLASS (afternoon session): This program is designed for sailors who have completed the beginner level course and are considering racing. The course will revisit basics taught in the beginner class. Students will sail longer and more challenging courses all while building confidence in their skills and knowledge for a lifetime of fun on the water! 

BEGINNER 420 CLASS (morning session): The beginner class is for students new to 420's but who have sailing experience.  Course includes basics of rigging a boat, sailing fundamentals, basic boat handling, seamanship (knots, weather, etc.), water safety and sportsmanship.

The 420 class is the most advanced program for junior sailors. Sailors are taught the fundamentals of racing, including but not limited to: boat speed, boat handling, strategy and tactics.
