Beginner Opti- Week 4

On Monday/Thursday the Beginner Opti sailors were bound to land to due heavy winds. Thankfully, our creative instructors kept them busy with nautical flags, sailing songs and sailing gear/wear relay races. The relay races were hysterical as they dressed in lifejackets, sunglasses, hats and crocs. In the boys vs. girls races, they ran/huled to a Hawaiian girl and ran back.

During sailing on Tuesday/Wednesday they practiced capsizing, tacking and gybing. They are becoming more confident each day in the pram. Instructors Laura and Lauren are very impressed with their progress this summer!
