Opti Green (ages 8-12)
November 16, 2019

Students who have progressed through our Whalers class, are invited into our Opti Green class. This class, taught in SailCubes (plastic Optimist sailboats), gives students the opportunity to try sailing either alone or with the company of one other student, but without an instructor.

Opti Green is also open to students who are brand new to sailing. These students may start in a Rhodes 19 or RS Quest with an instructor and other sailors to learn the basics of sailing and build confidence before being placed in the Optimist. The class will often be split into two or more groups that cater to individual students' skill level and progression. The ultimate goal of the Opti Green is for sailors to sail an "Opti" or SailCube single-handedly. Focus is on expanding the concepts of the Whalers Class, introducing the basic concepts of racing and building confidence through both games and basic drills.

The Opti Green class is held at the Jetties Sailing Center Monday - Friday mornings from 9:30 AM - 12PM and Monday - Friday afternoons from 1:30PM - 4PM. Please note: If we are able to open additional programming in Spring 2021, this class may move to our Polpis Harbor Location.
