Welcome and Come Aboard
Sometimes the best classrooms do not have four walls, desks, and a white board.
The joys of sailing go beyond learning how to safely navigate the water on a sailboat. Youngsters 9 – 18 learn responsibility and self-reliance; they learn more about themselves and how to communicate with others; and they develop the self confidence that comes with that knowledge. They develop enduring friendships with other youngsters with whom they share a common interest. And they have a skill and a sport they can take pleasure in for a lifetime – whether they sail the Bay, the Caribbean, or the World.
