WELCOME to PRIVATEER YOUTH SAILING

 Click HERE for Summer Sail Camp Registration Form

[There must be a completed

registration Form for each Student.]

WE OFFER OPTI and/or LASER INSTRUCTION.

AND, we have FLYING JUNIORS which take two sailors.

An OPTI sailor must be under 15 years of age to participate in regattas.

An OPTI is a small single-handed sailing dinghy.

Age and weight are determining factors in whether you should sail an OPTI.

A LASER is a one-design boat with a length of 13 feet 10.5 inches.

A LASER can be sailed by one or two persons.

Generally, a youngster from nine to fourteen years old and weighing less than 110 pounds would sail an OPTI.

A teenager from fourteen and up who weighs over 110 pounds would sail a LASER.

 

Our well-trained staff consists of US Sailing certified Level I Instructors

and US Sailing certified Counselors.

Their goal is to make every camper’s sailing experience enjoyable and worthwhile.

You don’t want to miss this week of fun!

 

What could be better than a week of LEARNING TO SAIL,

IMPROVING YOUR SAILING SKILLS, and MAKING NEW FRIENDS

at Privateer Yacht Club on beautiful Lake Chicamauga.
