Intermediate Camp

INTERMEDIATE: (Ages 10-16), 2 Week Program

Intermediate programming bridges the divide from crewmember to skipper in a two week course focused around getting campers prepared to sail a J22 unassisted. In the first week, all intermediate boats will sail with an instructor onboard. During the first week the focus is a closer look at sail trim and crew work, how to use a spinnaker, and skipper essentials such as departing/returning to the dock and Person-In-Water recovery drills. During the second week, campers will put together all of these skills to sail a boat without an instructor directly onboard. From a short distance off coaches will be instructing from a powerboat as they continue to focus on developing intermediate level skills such as spinnaker sets/douses, the basics of racing, sailing backwards, and steering without a rudder.
