Our spring curriculum includes teaching home schooled | home-schooled kids 8 to 16 years old how to sail safely and the right way.  If your child already knows how to sail, then we’ll work on better sailing techniques and/or racing rules and maneuvers. We are offering Home Schooled | Home-schooled Sailing every Wednesday from  1 pm to 3 pm, during the months of March, April and May.  The cost is $25 for two hours of sailing each Wednesday.
