Learn to Sail (8-12yr olds): This is a one week, half day option for juniors 8-12 yrs old who have never taken any sailing classes. Students will learn the parts of a sailboat, how to rig an optimist dinghy, wind direction and points of sail, steering and trimming sails.  This option is offered at the beginning of the summer.

Learn to Sail Teens (13-16 yr olds): This course is for teens who would like a refresher or are learning to sail for the first time. Students will develop their sailing knowledge and skills sailing on Flying Scots and 420s.  Students will learn to rig, steer, trim the sails, along with learning basic seamanship and water safety.

Beginner (8-12 yr olds): This is a course for students with less than one year of instruction.   Students will develop their sailing knowledge and skills in an exciting but safe environment.  Instruction is done in club owned Optimist dinghies, and sailors are paired with one another to learn the basics of how to rig a boat, steering, trimming the sail, knot tying, wind direction and water safety.

Intermediate (10-14 yr olds): This course is for sailors who have completed the beginner course and want to continue their progression.  This class allows students to strengthen their sailing knowledge and skills.  Emphasis is placed on proper boat-handling skills, including sail trim, body positioning, weight placement, tiller use, tacking and jibing. Sailors will also learn and develop their racing skills and will have the opportunity to participate in local regattas.  Students will sail either Opti’s or O'Pen Skiffs depending on their skill level. 

Advanced/Racing (12-16 yr olds): Sailors must be at least 12 years old and weigh more than 100 lbs. The 420 provides students the chance to learn in a double-handed boat.  Students will learn how to both skipper and crew. The focus of this class will be learning to sail as a team.  As skills improve they will learn the rules of sailboat racing and work towards learning to fly a spinnaker and use the trapeze. Please note: Sailors will be assessed at the beginning of the program to determine entrance into the advanced program. Instructors will determine sailor readiness and preparedness. If determined not ready for the advanced program,  the sailor will be retrained and have the option to retest into the advanced program. 

SWEEPs Session (8-16 yr olds):  This session is a fun introduction to racing and is only open to juniors who have taken a previous session this summer.  In the first week juniors will continue lessons at MBC with the focus on how to sail a typical race course, basic race rules and strategy. The second week juniors will participate in the SWEEPs regatta.  Sweeps is a 4 day junior regatta that takes places at the Shrewsbury Sail and Yacht Club (SSYC) Monday & Tuesday and at MBC on Wednesday & Thursday.  The racing can be competitive, but the focus is on learning and having fun.  This session is open to all levels, including Beginners!

MBC Fun Week (8-16 yr olds):  Fun Week is exactly that - after a week of racing in SWEEPs, the juniors are all excited to finish the summer with a week of fun and games.  There are no formal lessons, instead the juniors use the skills they have acquired throughout the summer to have some fun!  There is a day sail to Crazees Ice Cream, Pirate Day complete with costumes and hidden treasure, Scavenger Hunts on the water, and more.
