Sailing Summer Camp

Basic Sailing - The First Step for Teens

As an activity that can be performed over a life time, sailing will produce a unique sense of accomplishment. Shoreline’s experienced and well-qualified instructors provide a supportive learning environment covering water safety, boat handling basics, rigging and de-rigging as well as knot tying. Daily lectures and on-the-water exercises progressively develop each essential skill as campers’ alternate skipper and crew duties with their partners to learn and work cohesively as a team. To give each camper an objective idea of their progress, an individualized skills assessment is provided.
