The Little Puffs class is a course designed to teach kids 6 to 8 years old how to sail a small boat. In this class the students will be sailing a boat called a Sabot, which is an 8 foot dinghy, around Mission Bay. The class teaches the fundamentals of sailing, including parts and terminology, how to trim sails, and driving the boat. Often times the students will double up in a boat in order to feel comfortable and ease the responsibility aspect of sailing. This is a great class for first time sailors and students that are interested in racing at a young age.
The Beginning Sabots class is a course designed for kids that are between the ages of 8-12 and are first time or former summer sailors. This class is focused on fun and learning and is intended to introduce the kids to racing at the end of the course.
This class is designed for students interested in learning the basic and intermediate techniques of sailing a Laser. This boat is the perfect transition from smaller Sabot to the much bigger Laser. The ideal age is 12 and about 130lbs with a little bit of previous sailing experience. In this class we will instruct the students on all the basics of the boat as well as boat handling, rigging, and an introduction to racing. The MBYC Junior’s have a limited amount of charter Lasers available, so having your own boat is recommended.
The O'Pen Bic racing class if for sailors that have done the adventure sailing or beginning Sabot Racing class and are interested in racing the O'Pen Bic. There will be fun races mixed into the class with some other racing drills.
The Adventure Sailing Class is designed for those sailors that just want to have fun! This class is sailed in the Open Bic. This class is great for sailors that are not interested in racing but have a love for sailing.
