Fall Sailing: Optis

Fall Sailing: Optis

Most sailors will tell you: September and October are some of the nicest times to sail! It's not so hot any more and the wind is great. 

 

The class will focus on having fun and building competency in the opti. This class is only open to students who have completed at least 4 weeks of Optis (Beginner or Race) this summer at GBSA or another program.

 

This Fall sailing program will be held on Saturdays, starting on August 28th and ending on September 18th. If there is enough interest, we may be able to add additional weeks after that!

 

Hours are 11-4pm. Please arrive already having had lunch, but feel free to bring small/easy to eat snacks for on the water or after sailing.

 

This class will be coached by Tricia Sellon, GBSA's opti race coach

 

If classes are cancelled due to bad weather, the class will be rescheduled to that Sunday. If the Sunday is unsailable, you will be creditted the per diem rate based on what you have paid. Unfortunately, we cannot prorate for sailors missing any of the days for any reason beyond weather cancellations as determined by the coach.
