Sailing Camps

 
 

Campers learn and review the essentials of sailing at different camp levels depending on the experience of the camper on the beautiful San Francisco Bay.

 

Basic Sailing Camp

The Beginning Sailing camp is designed to introduce 10 to 17 year olds to the basics of sailing. Our five day schedule uses Coronado 15 sail boats that have both a main sail and a jib sail, yet are small enough at 15 feet for campers to sail successfully. Campers will learn water safety, rigging, tacking, jibing and basic rescue procedures. Campers will sail with two to four per boat under the close supervision of the instructors.
 

Ages & Eligibility

Campers must be ages 10-17 (by December 1 of the year preceding the current camp season) in order to register for this camp. All campers must have basic swimming skills in order to enroll.

Price: $250
