Optimist Explorers is a 2-week class for new or experienced sailors, ages 7 - 11. The 8 ft Optimist dinghy is an ideal boat for learning. It is a stable boat and is easy to handle on the water.

This class allows sailors to build confidence and enjoy sailing in a non-competitive environment. Students are split into groups of new and more experienced sailors to tailor the class content to each kid’s skill level.

Our curriculum places an emphasis on enjoyment of sailing through engaging games, activities and adventures.

Instructors always accompany the sailors on the water in safety boats where they can coach them and ensure their safety.

We place 2-3 sailors per boat to make them feel comfortable while learning, and each instructor supervises 8 or fewer sailors. You may register your child for a 1/2 day (AM or PM) or full day class.

The activities and adventures change each session so sailors may take the course multiple times without repeating content. After taking this class, sailors who are interested in racing should take the Optimist Intro to Racing class.
