Take a look at the smiles on our video roll of Optimist sailors, mostly under 10, enjoying freestyle sailing. Using club boats and their own boats with casual instruction from volunteer parents on Saturday mornings in September. What a great way to finish the season and introduce young ones to the fun of sailing.

Note 1: Assistant Instructor courses = Two X 2 week courses – limited to 3 places each course
Note 2: Participation in an ISA accrediting course does not guarantee your certification – you must be able to demonstrate that you have understood and can complete the relevant
skills to achieve certification. Similar to acquiring new skills in any discipline, the more time you spend practicing the better you will become. So we encourage you to gain
as much experience and time on the water as you can outside of course time. Take any and every opportunity that comes your way to go sailing, even if it’s not in a boat
that you have sailed before – get out there, have fun and enjoy your sailing.
