Course Description

Step 2 is a Beginner Sailing course offered to children ages 9-and-up from throughout the Greater Boston Area who are interested in learning more about sailing. Each session of Step 2 lasts three weeks, and students typically repeat this Step for a number of summers. During this time, they develop fundamental sailing skills, in preparation for more independent sailing in Step 3.

Please note: Due to high demand, enrollment in Step 2 is strictly limited to those who have already participated in one of the Courageous Summer programs. Please refer to the registration and FAQ section for more details.
