Wet Feet is a program designed to introduce kids to boats and water safety in a fun and safe environment. Age-specific activities introduce participants to topics including lifejacket safety and how to balance, sit, and move in sailing dinghies. Your child will learn how to act safely around boats as well as have fun with arts, crafts, and beach play. Choose from morning OR afternoon sessions. Please note our class times for 2019.

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). Please do not bring clothing items that can't get wet!

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