420 Camp provides a introduction to the basics of sailing for teens. Students spend the first day learning the basic knots, points of sail, rules of sail, and sail trim to help them prepare for when they go out on the water in teh afternoon. They also undergo the "tiptest" to make sure that they know what to do if their boat tips over. In the afternoon they go out on the water.
Our full-day format makes your child’s experience more meaningful and entertaining. All Pram and 420 camps are available only in our one-week, full-day format, a popular and effective program for us in summers past. Longer class periods offer students more sailing time and less rigging/unrigging time each session. Our instructors enjoy longer periods for improved social and instructional continuity.
