Beginner Opti Sailing Class

Charlotte is taking her first sailing class, Beginner Opti with North Coast Community Sailing. It is such a superb deal, only $45.00 for a week of classes.

Today, Lake Superior offered up a wonderful gift on the first day; crystal clear water, and lovely breezes. The kids started out learning the parts of the sailboat, doing a swim test and then completing a capsize drill where they had to tip the boat, right it, re-enter and bail it. Here, the kids are finishing up class by emptying and storing the boats on shore.

More pictures later.

  2. Sailing is a great way to fight stress and even depression, what's great is that there is now an opportunity to learn to sail.
