NEW IN 2019: We combined the Youth Beginning and Intermediate classes to form a new “Explorers” class. This class will allow new and experienced sailors to enjoy engaging activities and adventures without the pressure of competitive racing! The Explorers class is designed to be taken more than once and sailors will be grouped with other students of similar skill levels.
Also, we are now offering an Intro to Racing class that will prepare kids for the exciting world of Sailboat Racing.
The 420 Explorers Class is for beginner and newer sailors to enjoy learning to sail in a non-competitive environment. Sailors will learn all the basics needed to get on the water and build confidence. New games and adventures each session allow for sailors to repeat this camp multiple times.
The 420 Intro to Racing Class is for those sailors who know the basics, have good control of the sailboat, and are interested in taking the next step in their development. Through racing and games, sailors will improve boat handling and sail trim while learning about the exciting world of Sailboat Racing.
Students will also be introduced to sailing regattas at the local Twin Cities Youth Sailing (TCYS) Regattas.
The 420 Race Team is for sailors who have taken 420 Intro to Racing or equivalent and are interested in improving their racing skills. The class will focus on advanced boat handling techniques and racing tactics with individualized coaching.
Sailors are encouraged to participate in the popular Twin Cities Youth Sailing (TCYS) regatta series held most Fridays throughout the summer.
