Cost includes teaching instructions, accommodations, Saturday breakfast, Saturday dinner, Sunday breakfast, and snacks. Out of council scouts are welcome to join us for this event!

The sailing instructors will cover introduction to sailing and sailing safety for the class 1 sailors, while more experienced (those who have attended Summer Sail Away or past weekends) will learn more advanced skills with the potential of moving to a higher class. 

All classes will be grouped by the level of experience of each sailor. All classes are taught basic water rescues, parts and rigging a sailboat, points of sail, weather, knots and hitches, and navigation.

Class 1 – Beginners Single Sailing and Safety (Tandem)

Class 2 – Intermediate Sailing Open Water (Tandem and Single)

Class 3 – Dingy Sailing (Mainsail, Jib)

Class 4 – Sloop Sailing (Flying Scot)
