OPTI INTERMEDIATE (2 Wks)

Pre-Requisite: Opti FUN

This two-week course is for sailors ages 9-13 and under with some experience and who have taken the Opti FUN course. In Opti INTERMEDIATE, sailors are now sailing by themselves and refining their skills in the Optimist dinghy with a focus on proficiency in tacking, gybing, and upwind and downwind sailing. Sailors have the opportunity to complete their CANSail 1 and 2 Levels. It is recommended for sailors to take this course twice in order to achieve both levels.

For 2020, RYA course materials will be used in class. Links for purchase information will be provided upon request if the student would like to buy a digital copy for personal use.

Class times are 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.

Pre-Requisite: Optimist 1/Fun

* 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 Program" and we recommend students with food allergies please bring their own lunch.

In the event of program cancellation, the registered student/parent will receive the option of receiving a full refund, or to transfer their registration to a later date (in 2020) if space is available.
