Orientation Information

Orientation is scheduled for Thursday, 28 April, 2022.

Orientation is the first class of the program. Jr sailors are expected to attend; parents / guardians are welcome.

We begin with a brief overview of the program, then the students break into their assigned groups, where the instructors will present material such as:

  • Principles of sailing
  • Parts of the boat and sail
  • What to bring and wear

The evening also provides an opportunity for parents to meet the committee members, and learn about the program.

If your child has a Personal Flotation Device (PFD / Life Jacket), please bring it. The instructors will ensure it fits properly. There is no additional cost for this event.
