Opti Beginner

Opti Beginner is an introductory program that teaches the basics of sailing in a fun and safe environment. Using interactive lessons, sailing-themed games, and plenty of on-water time, sailors in this program will quickly learn their way around a boat. To develop confidence, sailors will begin sailing with a partner and practice their skippering and mainsheet skills one at a time. Sailors in this program will participate in exciting KYC traditions such as trips to Cedar Island and White Mountain Ice-Cream.
