Join Coastal Kayak this season to learn a centuries-old skill that is the perfect way to explore the inland bays of coastal Delaware! Discover how easy it is to skim across the water using only the wind.
Clinics will be taught by an instructor with over 20 years of experience teaching sailing. Participants will learn basic sailing terminology, how to read the wind, how to set, manage, and trim the sails, and the rules of the nautical road.
This is a “hands-on” clinic with an emphasis on FUN! Students will leave the clinic with a solid skill foundation and the confidence to go out and skipper a small sailboat on their own!
Saturday: We start the camp at 9:00 am with a short on land session familiarizing the students with sailing terms and the sailboat. Then we’ll get on the water! The instructor will demonstrate the maneuvers and then students will have the opportunity to take the helm. The morning session ends at 12:30 pm.
Saturday afternoon is free time for lunch, beach time, browsing through shops, renting a kayak or paddleboard, or simply relaxing!
We’ll reconvene at 4:00 pm for our afternoon session continuing to build on skills learned during the morning. The evening is a beautiful time to experience the bay! This session will end at 7:00 pm.
Sunday: We’ll see you again at 10:00 am Sunday morning for our final session which may include drills, sailing challenges, and definitely more hands-on practice! By the time the session is over at 1:00 pm, you’ll have your sea legs along with a strong base on which to build your sailing dreams!
