Step 1: Sailing 101

Step 1 is our “Sailing 101” course, offered to children ages 8 and up from the Greater Boston Area.

Description

Each student attends Step 1 for one, four or five day session. During this time they are introduced to the basics of sailing theory and are exposed to boating on Boston Harbor. Students are taught through a fun, high-energy, game-based approach, learning aboard stable keelboats, Rhodes-19s. No prior sailing experience necessary, though all students must be able to demonstrate a minimum level of swimming competency.
