BUTTERFLY LEARN TO SAIL

BUTTERFLY LEARN TO SAIL

Thumb butterfly learn

Our Butterfly classes are designed for novice sailors who are too old to fit comfortably in an Opti and kids of any age who are ready to train on a larger and more complicated boat. Novice sailors will learn the basics of sailing, sailboat maneuvering and right of way, and, when ready, how to recover from a tip-over, sail upwind to the windward mark, and complete controlled tacks and jibes under a variety of wind conditions. Intermediate sailors will continue to build on their sailing skills, with special emphasis on techniques that safely maximize speed in a more sophisticated boat.

Classtime: 10:00 - 12:30
Days of week: Classes run weekly from 6/19 - 7/28 and 8/7 - 8/11, Monday - Friday (rain or shine). There is a SPECIAL SCHEDULE for the WEEK OF JULY 3 only: class will meet Monday and Wednesday - Friday from 9:30 - 12:30. There is no class the week of 7/31.

Personalized instruction accelerates learning and helps sailors quickly master new challenges.
