Kids in Keelboats is a five day introductory sailing program to keelboat sailing. Completion of CANSail 1 is a prerequisite for this course.
(note: apologies, this photo is of kids from our youth team sailing a SanJuan 21... we don't have a photo from the course with an instructor onboard with the kids, but we promise you an instructor is onboard during the course)
Each boat has an instructor onboard with only three kids, youth receive a lot of coaching time as they rotate through learning and becoming proficient on the tiller, mainsail and jib.
The SanJuan 21 is a smaller, stable keelboat ideal for teaching youth how to sail. Keelboats have inherent stability which allows sailors to focus on learning and practicing sail trim, steering and teamwork.
