Lastly, at this time, the intro 420 program is only offered in the afternoon. Check it out!!

Environmental Responsibility 

As sailors we are privileged to play on the ocean everyday and, as such, consider ourselves stewards of the environment. Appreciation for and enjoyment of a clean ocean is a key component of our sailing program.

ALL programs minus the intro 420 are either FULL DAY or HALF DAYS. When you register your sailor, make sure you choose the correct program and time. 

Wetfeet

This program runs from the whole day 8:30-4:00 or HALF DAYS from 8:30-12:00 OR 12:30-4:00 Monday-Friday for one week.

Wetfeet is designed for sailors ages 5-8, who are looking to gain the basics of sailing and get comfortable on the water. This is a either a full day, weel-long course or a half-day, week-long course. If you choose to enroll your student in both the morning session and afternoon session, lunchtime supervision is provided.

Sailors can register for the full day or either AM or PM sessions, and for multiple sessions.
