CANSail 3&4

CANSail 3&4

Our month-long CANSail 3 & 4 program focuses on applied skill acquisition. Participants sail in double-handed C420 dinghies and continue to master and build on skills introduced in previous levels. Our certified instructor will teach new and exciting elements of sailing, including racing fundamentals, trapeze and flying spinnaker. Participation in this program also includes participation in a local regatta, please inquire for details. In order to enroll for this program sailors must have completed CANSail level 2 or be able to demonstrate CANSail 2 level skills.

Our program runs from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM Monday to Friday. Early drop off at 8:00 AM and late pick up at 5:00 PM is available for an additional $30 per week.

Optional Lunch Program, why pack a lunch when we can make one for you? NYC’s dining room will put together a delicious meal for your child, including a nutritious lunch and  healthy snack. $65 per week.

If your child has their CANSail 2 and is too small to move into 420s or prefers sailing in the Optimist dinghy, you might want to sign them up for our Opti Race Team – More Information Here.
