About the Event
An introduction to sailing, Young sailors will have fun with the basics of sailing. 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. Swimming, games, and knot tying will all be part of this fun-focused introduction to sailing class. This class will be taught primarily in Prams and Optis.
Sailors should meet in the MYC Sailing School classroom. The MYC Sailing School is located in the 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.
