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 will learn to race higher performance dinghies (420s and Lasers), and throw asymmetrical spinnakers aboard the RS Quests.  Students will also have the opportunity to practice on some of our larger boats, including but not limited to our J80s. Additionally, students will sail to a Boston Harbor Island for an overnight camping trip and participate in weekly science lessons.
