SAILTRAINING ESSENTIALS
FALL 2018 | 7th & 8th Grade

Flying over the water, dancing over the waves…Sailing!  There’s nothing quite like that sense of freedom as you harness the wind to propel your boat through the white-capped waters.  There’s also nothing like the waters of Penobscot Bay with its nearly 200 islands and indented coastline. The winds are generally moderate and predictable, and the dangers are well marked.  This is the perfect backdrop to learn how to sail.

The course, which will be taught in the field, will consist of 10 hands-on training sessions to ensure a safe, friendly and fun way to experience sailing.  There will be two sessions dedicated to service learning.  Then the course culminates in a challenging multi-day sailing expedition.

You will gain not only technical expertise and skills, but more importantly, you will discover a new focus and level of commitment to embracing challenge that will serve you for the rest of your life.
