Our classes utilize US Sailing’s REACH curriculum along with our locally developed lessons to teach a dockside STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) session before students sail in our local ocean waters and learn in nature's classroom. The physics of sailing is taught along with navigation, tides, currents, nautical knots and marine science. Classes utilize a group learning environment to encourage teamwork and collaboration. All of our sailing classes are "parent friendly".
