Youth Sunshine Sailors Camp

Has your child shown interest in boating? Perhaps in sailing! This is a perfect sailing camp for the younger sailor (ages 8-11) who wants to check out sailing in a very stable “single-handed” (one sailor) sailboat. These young sailors will take to Lake Washington in our fleet of Pram sailboats that are lightweight, easy to maneuver, flat bottom boats. The camp will also include but not exclusive to: rigging, knots, basic rules of the water, teamwork, with an emphasis on safety and FUN!

*This course requires a float test taken prior to class. Float tests are available at Seattle Pools www.seattle.gov/parks/pools.asp
