Our Optimist Beginner classes are aimed to teach both first time and less experienced sailors the basics skills needed to sail in a fun, safe, recreational learning environment. 

During each session, students will be taught the points of sail, proper sail trim, how to rig and de-rig the boat, knot tying and general seamanship. Our certified staff of instructors will implement a variety of different sailing-based activities, both onshore and on the water, which will allow students to have fun and gain confidence while maximizing learning. 

At the end of each session, instructors will suggest the next step for each student based on their progress. 2 to 2½ Hour Class. Boats are provided.

No prerequisite required.
