Course Description

Step 4 is an Advanced Sailing course offered to children ages 12-and-up from throughout the Greater Boston Area. Each session of Step 4 lasts three weeks, and students frequently repeat this step for a number of summers. During this time, they apply the skills mastered in Step 3 to take on more complex challenges, like competing in local regattas and cruising out to the Boston Harbor Islands for overnight camping trips.
