PROGRAMS

With Novice, Intermediate and Advanced Programs, we have something for every sailor!

AHSEP Programs are popular and space is limited.

Novice

The novice program is an introduction to sailing for youth beginning at age 8 to 15. Students learn sailing basics including sailing safety, boat nomenclature, rigging, points of sail and related sail trim, basic sailing knots, capsize recovery, and teamwork.


 

Intermediate

The intermediate program focuses on sailing skill improvement for youth ages 8 to 17 years. The curriculum first reviews the basics as presented in the novice program.  Then, students learn more advanced sailing skills including crew responsibilities and teamwork, crew position and boat balance, sail trim and shape, building boat speed, enhancing boat performance on various points of sail, and introduction to racing.  Students entering the class must submit US Sailing Red Books showing that they can safely steer a boat in all points of sail and have mastered capsize recovery skills.

Advanced

 

The advanced program focuses on racing and boat handling skills. This program is for graduates of the intermediate program and provides on-the-water coaching to improve sailing and racing skills.


 

Classes offered in two week sessions (except session 1 which is shortened due to holiday). Sailors are instructed in groups based on skill level.
