Join us during school vacation for fun on the water. Using OCC’s Lido 14 dinghies new sailors will learn water safety, rigging, parts of the boat, boat handling, sail trim, points of sail, knots and much more. For returning sailors the focus will be on reinforcing key sailing concepts and the fundamentals of boat handling. On-the-water skill practice will include tacking and jibing, sailing on all points of sail using proper sail trim and lots more. Games, drills and fun short course races will help tie it all together. The goal of the course is to develop sailors who are able to work as a team to safely and confidently handle their boats in all types of weather conditions.
Each student must bring warm layered clothing, a change of clothes, a towel, hat, water and a snack each each day.
