Beginner Level  It’s never too early to get on the water! The Taste of Optis class is designed for kids aged 6 to 9 and does not require sailing experience. Meant to be a fun group experience, it enables kids to get a taste of sailing in one week of instruction. Students will become familiar with water safety on the docks and in an optimist trainer, while learning what it feels like to be on the water. Over the week the students will be introduced to the different parts of the boat, knots, rigging, and steering. One step at a time, the first class is the most important one to take in a nurturing environment with friendly and patient instructors. Combine this class with Second Taste of Optis for an awesome, two-week learn to sail experience.
*$220/week, NESS will be closed Tuesday, July 4
