How do I know what class to sign my child up for?

Progression thru the program is rarely linear: 1 "beginner" class, then on to 1 "intermediate" class, then on to 1 "racing" class and then "done." Children respond, and retain skills, utilizing repetition. Having solid fundamentals is critical to their safety, confidence, and success. Almost every single sailor in our program repeats – or "refreshes" – one or more classes. We call the classes "and Refresher". The "refresher" is a good opportunity to strengthen skills, broaden experience, and increase confidence. Social considerations are also important. When in doubt, please email the youth program director,, or send a question through <ContactUs>.
