Community Sail Program Begins

Put in Bay sailing schoolPut in Bay sail school Put in Bay sail school Five Week Learn-to-Sail program begins June 10th, 2019. The program has grown to upward of 100 participants over the last few years. The youngest sailors, aged eight to twelve, usually start out in the Opti Green class with other beginner sailors. Older, novice sailors are welcome and will be placed in an age appropriate class where, sailing with their peers, they quickly learn the basics and more. Returning sailors are grouped with an eye toward skill level and age. As skills improve, interested sailors can participate in the Learn to Race class. Students selected to join the TEAM PiB Race Team will travel off-island to compete against other area youth.

A separate Race Clinic will not be offered this year; however, all sailors will receive some racing experience the last week of classes, with focused training for this year’s racers to prepare our teams for I-LYA Junior Race Week and the various Saturday regattas.
