Wet Feet Program

The Wet Feet program is ideal for kids who have never set foot on a boat.  These sessions allow kids to dip their toes in the water and get used to how a boat feels when it's in the water.  Several kids sail in each boat with a coach boat alongside in our inner harbor.  This protected environment allows kids to feel safe while meeting friends and trying a new sport. Wet Feet is great for sailors ages 5-8 yrs old.

Length of Program:  1 week
Time:  9am - 4pm
Cost: $   450.00 ( $   375.00 for KYC Family Members)
Boat:  Oppie (A plastic, beginner version of the popular Opti)

The maximum recommended weight for this program is 115 pounds, otherwise entry into our LEARN program is recommended. Sailors must wear a Personal Flotation Device (PFD) at all times near the water, including while sailing and swimming.

Opti Beginner

Our Opti Beginner program focuses on getting kids on the water as much as possible.  Starting small with several campers in a boat and a 1:4 camper to coach ratio, confidence on the water will develop quickly. Using fun, interactive games and 1-on-1 coaching, sailors learn the basics of safety, parts of the boat, and how to handle a sailboat.  On top of sailing and coaching, each includes swimming, games in City Park, a trip to Cedar Island in Kingston Harbour for a BBQ lunch and a trip to White Mountain for ice cream.
