Did you know that Great River School has a High School Sailing Team? Racing sailboats is an amazing sport that combines physical prowess, sharp thinking, strategic planning, teamwork, physics and psychology. Our team is looking to grow, and we would love to introduce you to sailing! This summer camp will teach you the fundamentals on harnessing the wind, controlling the sails, and steering the boat to navigate across the lake. You will learn how to tack and jibe, the points of sail, how to adjust the main and the jib, and how to steer using a tiller. Each day, you will have the opportunity to skipper, crew and swim. Campers will also have the opportunity to sail in one of the small racing dinghies with a High School Sailing Team member. Drop off and pick up is at Bde Maka Ska near St. Louis Park. For safety reasons, participants must be comfortable on the water and in a boat, and be able to follow group directions. We only have one boat so space is limited. Serious sailors only please!
