Learn to Sail this Summer

Give your kids a unique experience this summer learning to sail!

Dates: June 21-25 or July 26-30
Time: 10:00am – 12:30pm
Who: kids entering 6th – 12th grade
Class size: limited to 10 kids
Where: Oak Hollow Lake – Sailboat Point – across the lake from the marina
Cost: $150 per one-week session

In this class, your kids will learn the basics of sailing through an open-air classroom, hands-on sailing with experienced sailors, and finally, sailing by themselves.

They will also be exposed to the vast options that sailing includes, from pleasure sailing to windsurfing, foiling, ice sailing, and the oldest continuous competition, The America’s Cup.

Our schedule will (weather permitting) start each morning with some classroom instruction, followed by time on the water. OHSC will provide the life vests.

Monday – Wednesday, we will meet at Sailboat Point, and Thursday and Friday at Oak Hollow Marina where they will learn to sail the Sunfish provided by the City of High Point.

The class also includes a one-year free membership to Oak Hollow Sailing Club where, if they choose, they can participate in our other activities such as fun sails and racing.
