Students must be able to demonstrate safe capsize recovery unassisted. Classes will be taught in Open Bic dinghies – fast, planing dinghies specially designed for children. Advanced boat handling and racing skills will be practiced – including “Un-Regatta” (freestyle) maneuvers! The Advanced Bic class will frequently sail outside of the marina.
