Skipper wannabes may learn to tack and jib at the annual summer Sail Camp hosted by the New Smyrna Beach Parks and Recreation Department.
Yacht Club members will teach students age 12 – 20 to sail without assistance. Lessons include hands on training on the water, terminology, sailing techniques, wind, currents, safety precautions and more.
The cost to participate is $150 for New Smyrna Beach residents and $155 for non-residents.
Class size is limited to 12 students per class.
All students must bring their lunch, drinks, sunscreen, sunglasses, sneakers or boat shoes and swimwear.
Each student also must have a type 3 life jacket and training manual. Manuals are $25.
Students may register online here or at the Recreation Department, 1000 Live Oak Street.
