Introduction to Sailing for Kids- In English

Is your kid tired of trying the same sport every summer? Why not enroll your child to try something new and unique?

Sailing for Kids is here this summer! One month program fully in English by native English speaking coach Vincent Peter.

Learn a new sport, make new friends and practice English. Three-in-one!

Sailing is a unique sport that has proven to strengthen physical, mental and psychological aspects of participants.

Kids will learn teamwork, sportsmanship, patience, being responsible and to be more confident!

Come in with no experience and walk out sailing a boat independently!!

Focus is on sailing fun, learning the basics—safety on the water and making the boat go where you want it to.

Ages 8-14 are welcome with no experience required. Combination of land sessions and water sessions. After just a few hours of land sessions, students are on the water sailing in an Optimist dinghy. Total class time is four hours per day for eight days, including preparation, rigging, sailing, de-rigging, post-sailing snacks and hydration.


The first goals are to learn how make the boat move, to control boat direction, to sail comfortably in wind up to 10-15 mph, and to understand boating safety techniques. Students are welcome to take this class multiple times until they feel they have the skills and confidence to move up to Junior Sailing.
