About the Event
This class is tailored to both the beginner and the experienced sailor. Sailors will have fun with the basics of sailing and build on their skills throughout the week. A combination of fun activities and skill-building drills will be incorporated into the class to develop a love of sailing and confidence in each child. They will study wind directions, parts of the boat, rigging, capsize and recovery, bailing, knots, points of sail, tacking, jibing, as well as basic boat care. Experienced sailors will learn sail trim, weight distribution, maneuvering points of sail, and getting in and out of irons. Swimming, games, and knot tying will all be part of this fun-focused sailing class.
Sailors should meet in the MYC Sailing School classroom. The MYC Sailing School is located in the white building to the north of the Muskegon Yacht Club.
Students should dress comfortably in a bathing suit under their clothing and a life vest. Students should bring their own water bottle and sunscreen. Sharing will not be permitted due to Covid safety protocols. Other helpful, but not required items are a hat, sunglasses with a strap, and sailing gloves.
Free water taxi service available from Point Marina in North Muskegon.
All students will be swim tested for safety on the first day of class, prior to any time on the water.
Parents will need to sign a Liability Waiver and Emergency Treatment Authorization form as well as a Concussion Awareness form prior to the student starting camp. These documents can be found here: Sailor forms. Prior to the start date of camp, please complete and print at home to bring with your sailor on the first day. We will also have forms available to fill out in person at the start of camp. Students without the proper forms on file will not be able to participate in sailing.
