420 For Teens

***For Beginners & Intermediate/Advance 420 Sailors!

Days: Monday-Thursday 
Time: 9am-12pm 
Fee: $360 per session or $635 Full Summer

  • Session I - June 17 - July 11 (no class July 4)
  • Session II - July 15 - August 8

The 420 teen class is designed for youth aged 12-18 who are both interested in learning to sail and learning to race in a fun, social environment. The Club 420 is a double-handed sailboat (2 people) which allows sailors to work closely with their teammate while on the water. For beginner sailors, this class will teach basic seamanship skills like personal safety, knot tying, rigging the boat, caring for equipment, capsizing, and righting the boat, as well as introductory sailing skills like skippering and crewing as a team,  reading the wind, and the points of sail. Boats are provided for this class and equipment use is included in the course fee. 

***New this summer, we will also be offering an intermediate/advanced 420 class for returning sailors. The class will focus on more advanced boat-handling skills, racing tactics, rules, and boat speed. 

Students who register for multiple sessions will have the opportunity to participate in one or more regattas in the area.
