First Mate: Sailors, Ages 5-7
Prerequisites: Competent Swimmer with a life vest
It’s never too early to get out on the water!  This beginner program introduces younger children to the fundamentals of boating. Our sailors will learn the basics of rigging, bailing and steering a Pram dinghy on land, then sail with instructors on our  14-foot RS Quests exploring Plymouth Harbor. During these group sails, students will practice steering and trimming sails, and learn to watch the wind, tide and currents. Sailors then pair up in Prams accompanied by instructors for some exciting hands-on practice sailing together. Four 2-week sessions will be offered this season. Once they are competent, a 7-year old First Mate student may be given recommendation to move up to our Mate 1 class.
