Sailing Camps

Instructor: Angelo Tenorio

Learn to sail from beginning to end on our 12ft Pico sailboats!

Ages: 8-14        Location: Shoreline Park @ Donner Lake

Basic:

The basic sailing course is for your child if they have never sailed before or have had limited boating experience. They will experience basic water safety and boat handling skills, gain needed confidence to recover a capsized sail boat, basic knots, rigging, wind direction and the effect of wind on sails. They will learn to be able to sail both up wind and downwind while gaining confidence on the water as part of a team. Participants must be comfortable in the water and know how to swim. A wetsuit is recommended, but not required.
