What could be better than a week of Learn to Sail Camp, improving your sailing skills,
and making new friends?  Sailing is a perfect activity for anyone that enjoys water sports
and outdoor recreation. Sailing can be exciting or relaxing.  Regardless of age, ability
or limitations, sailing has something for everyone and can be enjoyed with all ages.
