Introduction to 420 Sailing


Grades 7-9 |  Monday through Friday from 8:30am-4:30pm

The Beginner 420 class is an entry level class for older students interested in learning the basics of sailing or for our students familiar with Dyers/Optimists looking to move up to a bigger boat. This class teaches boat safety, knots, and boat parts. Students also learn basic maneuvering, points of sail, and docking. This camp is designed as a way for newer sailors to learn at a comfortable pace in in a friendly and supportive environment. The skills covered in the program provide a foundation for further pursuit of the sport.  No sailing experience necessary. The 420 is a double-handed dinghy that has two sails. Named for the hull’s dimensions of 4.2 meters. It is most commonly used for college and high school sailing.
