Opti 1

For U8 Graduates and those beginning their sailing experience. Appropriate for ages 8–15

The 1's class focuses on the basics of sailing, from first-time-on-the-water sailors to the sailors who can tack and gybe in complete control and sail upwind in 10 knots of breeze. The focal point of the class is to make learning sailing fun, while keeping everyone safe on the water. Sailors will learn the boat parts, rigging, parts of sail, correct body position, and boat handling. An emphasis will be on tacking, gybing, upwind and downwind sailing, capsizing, docking, and an understanding of the current and tides. Basic seamanship and navigation skills will also be addressed.

Tennis skills focus on forehand and backhand drills, beginning to refining scoring, and an introduction to service. More experienced players will develop competitive skills, including introduction to singles and doubles strategy, as well as scoring, and will be encouraged to enter the junior division of parent/child tournaments.
