Group 1) Sea Squirts (Ages - 5 to 7)

Sea Squirt program is designed to introduce young sailors to fun and safety in, around and on the water. The goal of this course is to build young sailor's love for sailing in a controlled and safe environment.  The class is designed to work with the children at the level that they are comfortable with.  Activities build confidence and include sailing, knot tying, nautical terminology, crafts, songs, water activities and "messing about in boats".  We emphasize the importance of team work, respect, and safety in daily lessons. Our number one goal is to pass on our passion for the sport to the next generation of St. Croix Sailors.

  • Provide a U.S. Coast Guard approved Type III Personal Flotation Device (PFD) with a plastic whistle attached.

  • Swim 20 yards while wearing a PFD.

The 8 foot optimist is the international standard in youth sail training. The “Opti” is specifically designed for junior sailors under 120 lbs.
