Sailing Day Camps focus on having fun on the water while learning the basics of sailing. Total novices are welcome as are those with a prior familiarity with sailing. Students learn basic sailing theory, rigging, and launching, sailing a straight course, tacking and jibing, parts of a boat, and recovery from a capsize. On-land games and activities are geared toward developing a love and appreciation of sailing while learning sailing terminology, safety, knots, and other seamanship skills.
The RS Zest, Badger Tech, and the Badger Sloop are the primary boats used. Bring lunch money for food at the Union or bring a sack lunch along with a water bottle.
