Summer Sailing

Summer Sailing



A few of the many benefits of sailing are:

  • responsibility and respect for the environment;
  • water safety: how to avoid collisions
  • character education: sailing requires perseverance and following rules;
  • learn teamwork;
  • self-esteem and confidence by piloting their own craft;
  • spatial awareness;
  • physical coordination;
  • important habits: children learn how to keep their boat tidy, how to properly rig and unrig a boat, how to put things away in the right place.

The Optimist is one of the two most popular sailing dinghies in the world, with over 150,000 boats officially registered with the class and many more built but never registered.
