Introduction to Sailing:
This is a beginner class for children to have positive early learning experiences on the water and while sailing. Building confidence, ensuring safety, demonstrating respect, courtesy to others, and good teamwork are primary goals. Participants learn basic nomenclature, seamanship, and sailing skills. 

Intermediate Sailing:
Intermediate students who have taken our beginner program (see above) or have participated in a sailing training program before will build upon the introductory skills learned previously and to build confidence. Participants will revisit basic nomenclature, seamanship, and sailing skills while learning more intermediate skills such as maneuvers, sail theory, navigation rules.

Small sloop-rigged dinghies called “Mirrors” are used for instruction on freshwater lakes. Fun sailing games and other skill-related activities are incorporated into the course. Upon completion students should feel comfortable sailing with another participant.

Our Saling Camps are expertly led by Cobscook Experiential Programs Teacher, Damon Weston. Each participant will be supported in their learning process with compassion and fun.
