After School Sailing
Registration is still open for the 2013 Winter After School Sailing Program. Daily rates are available for $30 per class until March 20th. Please read below to see all of the options we offer:
Beginner/Advanced Double-handed class:
The Beginning/Advanced Double-Handed course is designed for our learn to sail and advanced racing sailors. This class focuses on all areas of sailing and is taught by one of our most advanced coaches. This class is designed for ages 12 -17 (including High School sailors) and is a very informative course.
Beginner/Intermediate/Advanced Laser class:
This class is designed for students interested in learning the basic and intermediate techniques of sailing a Laser. This boat is the perfect transition from smaller Sabot to the much bigger Laser. In this class we will instruct the students on all the basics of the boat as well as boat handling, rigging, and an introduction to racing. The MBYC Junior’s have a limited amount of charter Lasers available, so having your own boat is recommended.
29er Racing Class:
This class is designed to improve all aspects of 29er sailing. We will be going over all the proper techniques, all the tips, and how to properly rig the boat. (There are not charter boats available for this class)
The Beginning Sabots class is a course designed for kids that are between the ages of 7-12 and are first time or former summer sailors. This class is focused on fun and learning and is intended to introduce the kids to racing at the end of the course.
Advanced Sabots class:
This class is the most advanced Sabot class that we have to offer. In this class students will learn the technical aspects of sailing along with doing video work. There will be classroom talks about strategy and mechanics prior to going on the water every day. Students are expected to compete in multiple regattas as well as weekend clinics.

2:30pm - 3:25pm Arrive and rig boats 3:25pm - 3:35pm Classroom discussion on the days drills 3:35pm - 5:00pm On the Water Drills 5:00pm - 5:15pm De-rig Boats 5:15pm - 5:30pm De-brief on drills
