Youth Sailing Camp on Saturday, July 14

We have a new offering to introduce more young people to sailing. We will be conducting a youth sailing camp on Saturday, July 14. Depending upon the number of students enrolled, the morning will be for students between ages 8 -12. The afternoon will be for teenagers. A barbeque lunch will be included for students and volunteers. We hope that students from the parent child class and other CLSA young people will invite their friends to join them for a fun day of sailing at our lake.

Sailors will learn how to leave and return to shore, basic sailing maneuvers, sailing on all points of sail, and how to right a boat from a capsize.

The cost will be $35 per student ($45 for non-members) plus $15 for materials.
