Enjoy happy times at the lakefront learning to sail in our small, stable Pram dinghies. Students work together to learn and refine the points of sail, boat rigging, terminology and basic steering skills. This is a great starting point for those first-time sailors as well as a chance to master skills for those who’ve joined us before. Most sailors repeat this class several times before advancing to Reachers or Racing programs.
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.
