SAILING 1

This class focuses on learning the basics of sailing in a fun, positive and safety-conscious environment. Geared toward the total beginner, this class introduces students to identifying wind direction, rigging and launching, sailing a straight course, tacking and jibing around a buoy, and recovery from a capsize. In addition, youth learn knots, parts of a boat, basic sail trim, and are expected to assist others and treat their equipment with respect.

The Badger Tech and the Badger Sloop are the main boats used for this class. The goal is for students to feel comfortable sailing solo and advance their skills enough to move on to Sailing 2.

SAILING 2

Students taking this course should already be comfortable sailing solo. In addition to continuing basic skills (see Sailing 1), students learn more advanced sailing theory, continue to develop skills of launching and landing, sailing in all points of sail with proper sail trim, handling wind shifts and puffs, problem solving, and further developing communication and teamwork skills.

The Badger Tech is used, although students are also introduced to more advanced boats including the 420s and Laser. Repeating this course is highly recommended as students continue to develop their skills and knowledge with each subsequent session.
