Intro to Sailing - Program Partners

This is a fun, introductory sailing session using a "quick-start" method of learning to sail Hobie Wave Catamarans. In a short period of time, we get students starting with 8-year-olds an introductory sailing lesson on the waters of Green Bay. On days where there is no wind, you will have the opportunity to experience kayaking or stand-up paddleboarding. For those days with inclement weather, participants will enjoy a safe and fun-filled day of related activities indoors. We encourage individual challenge and growth while fostering a love for the water and sailing. We look forward to enjoying a fun and safe day on the water with you!
