Step 4: Beginner Dinghy Sailing

Beginner Dinghy Sailing (ages 12 and up) is designed to introduce students to sailing dinghies independently (small sailboats with centerboards instead of keels). Dinghies are small, fast, fun, close to the water, and capable of capsizing!


Step 4 is a beginner dinghy step taught in RS Quests designed to get sailors comfortable with the basics of sailing in dinghies before moving onto the more advanced Lasers and 420s in Step 5.  Step 4 students will also sail to a Boston Harbor Island for an overnight camping trip, have weekly science lessons, and have the opportunity to sail in some of larger boats including, but not limited to, our J80s.
