SAILING CAMP

Learn to Sail with the South Whidbey Yacht Club!

YOUTH AGES 10+

Don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity to learn to sail! This camp teaches kids ages 10 and up the basics of sailing. Each student will be assigned their own boat in each weekly session. The course combines shore side learning with lots of hands-on, on-the-water sailing experience. Campers will learn boating safety, basic seamanship, and knot tying. The focus is on sailing and having fun.

A welcome message will be emailed about one week before camp with final details. A more detailed description of program and your responsibilities can be found at swyachtclub.org/youth-programs . Register with South Whidbey Parks and Rec.

Requirements: Each student must demonstrate the ability to stay afloat for two minutes without a life jacket at the orientation. Intermediates must be at least 12 years old and have achieved a level 2 competency or by permission of the Program Director.

Instructors: Our Head Instructors are U.S. Sailing certified and will be assisted by experienced dinghy sailors. Sufficient staff will be on hand to ensure each participant receives personal attention. Our priorities are safety, then fun and learning.

Location: Deer Lake, check website for details. Beginning Camp meets the first day at Deer Lake Park at the end of Bucktail Rd. for swim assessment and orientation, then that afternoon and the rest of the camp will be at the separate sailing site at Deer Lake (transportation required by parent/guardian). Returning sailors do not need to be assessed again, but should attend this orientation. Parents and drivers are encouraged to join us at the orientation. Intermediate Camp will meet directly at the sailing site. New this year, the students will have 2-person boats available. These boats will promote teamwork and set up for skills needed in high school and college sailing programs. Lasers will be available.
