This program is designed for kids between the ages of 10-18 who want to learn more about sailing. The seven-week program begins at a local swimming pool to assess each student's swimming skills and teach the basics of sailing. They then move to Ruedi Resevoir where students will put into practice what they've learned.
Be a winner at the weekly races at Ruedi and attend a parent/student banquet at the summer's end. Each participant will receive an award, certificate, and a sailing manual. Transportation is provided.
Children should sign up for this class only if they plan to attend all six weeks and have an earnest desire to learn to sail. Previous sailing is helpful when attending this program.
