Step 5: Advanced Sailing
Step 5 is an Advanced Sailing course offered to children ages 13 and up from the Greater Boston Area.
Each session of Step 5 lasts three weeks. Step 5 students who choose to focus on advanced dinghy sailing will learn to race higher performance dinghies (420s and Lasers), and throw asymmetrical spinnakers aboard the RS Quests. Students who choose a sportboat/cruising focus will learn advanced sailing skills plus cruising and navigation basics aboard larger keel boats, including a 26-foot J/80, a fun, high-performance sportboat. Additionally, students will sail to a Boston Harbor Island for an overnight camping trip.
In 2018 we are planning on offering Step 5 Advanced Dinghy and hope to offer Step 5 Advanced Cruising/Sportboat depending on staffing availability.
