man time is flying by this summer! my 2 older boys just finished up the 2nd week of sailing camp this year. conditions were similar to week 1, but Monday was stormy with high winds – my older son sailed only a short time in the morning, and my younger son didn’t sail at all that day.
the rest of the week generally played out about the same each day: winds were mostly lighter, less than 10 mph each day. my younger son mostly sailed the Opti, and my older son sailed mostly the FJ and the 420.
to mix it up during this second week, the instructors have a neat activity on Wednesday: the kids all have to sail to a park on the other side of the lake where they have pizza delivered for lunch at the park, and then sail back in the afternoon. and on Friday, the instructors grill a chicken barbeque lunch to finish off the week.
all told, Ive been very pleased with the Learn to Sail program at Pontiac Yacht Club – a very impressive program, giving students a variety of sailing experiences and a great time out on the water!
