OPTI FUN (1 Wk)

Pre-Requisite: None

For sailors aged 8 – 12, Opti FUN is both a beginner sailing course for first time seafarers as well as a class that continues to challenge young sailors who are all about having fun around the yacht club, on and off the water. The curriculum teaches the fundamentals of balance and steering, boat handling, and knot tying, but also provides more opportunities for game playing, park and beach field trips, swimming, and simply having a good time at the yacht club with their friends.

No manual is required for Opti FUN.

Class times: 0900-1530 hrs.

Sailors must bring their own government-approved P.F.D. (lifejacket) and appropriate clothing, including at least one change of clothes and soft-soled footwear (NO Flip-Flops), as well as lunch and a lock for day lockers. Please do not bring clothing items that can't get wet! Wetsuits/drysuits are not required, but some participants find wearing one more comfortable.

Helmets designed for water-sports are highly recommended for the OptiFun students.

* Registration Fee does not include lunch. Please purchase separately.

Please be advised that the RVYC kitchen is unable to accommodate food allergies with the "Hot Lunch Programme" and we recommend students with food allergies please bring their own lunch.
