All sessions run for one week, from 9am until 4pm and are taught by US Sailing Level 1 instructors. The first 9 sessions are designed for sailors of all experience levels. The last session, Regatta Week, is reserved for returning sailors. Any student that has taken the LWSS course before, or any student with qualifying experience (at the discretion of the Lead Instructor or Program Director) are welcomed. This course focuses on racing. Students will learn and practice more advanced sailing skills throughout the Regatta Week in preparation to participate in the Little Washington Sailing School Regatta in Washington Harbor.
Parents should plan to bring their children to class every day regardless of the weather as instructors will still be teaching skills inside the classroom and providing other boating-related activities. In the event of a major storm, the Lead Instructor and/or the Program Director may cancel class. If bad weather arises during the day, the Lead Instructor will discontinue outdoor activities and will hold class indoors.
