Youth Sailing Program - 2009
The Armdale Yacht Club offers a Youth Sailing Program for children ten years of age and older for the months of July and August.
White Sail levels 1-3, Bronze Sail Levels 4 & 5, and Silver Sail 6 (subject to at least 3 registrants).
White Sail Sessions cover the basics of sailing. Bronze sessions introduce sailors to more advanced technical skills and racing, focusing on roles of both skipper and crew.
We encourage sailors to take more than one session if possible. The more time on the water the better!
