This experience will enable your sailor to learn the basic skills of sailing which they can then continue to improve with us or they can put it in their memory bank to be used again sometime in the future. During the 12 weeks we’ll learn to sail on a “reach” and to “tack” (turn) and progress to sailing “upwind” and “downwind” and “gybing”.  We will also learn to right the boat after a capsize, lots of sailing terminology, and how to tie knots.

Students learn in a class environment and then put their skills into practice on the water. LEYSF provides boats and great instructors, you just need to:

  • be 8th to 12th grade (younger kids here), and able to swim, 
  • bring a life jacket,
  • water shoes that keep your toes covered (no flip-flops),
  • water bottle,
  • sunblock,
  • quick-dry shorts and shirt,
  • towel
  • Helmets are suggested for beginner class.  Bicycle and skateboard helmets are great.  There are sailing helmets available too.
