Beginner Opti full day for age 10-13 to about 125 lbs.
A class for those with no previous experience, very limited experience, or those who need more time to develop confidence. At the end of Beginner Opti students are generally able to control a boat on their own on all points of sail, and have experience tacking, jibing, rigging their own boats, and sailing to and from the dock. Controlled capsize drills on a calm day are also a part of the curriculum and are considered a very fun part of the class by most students.
