The Wet Feet experience is designed to help young sailors feel comfortable on the water, and to experience the sport of sailing in the most positive way. Each group has a maximum of six participants, allowing close and supportive coaching and supervision.
The program is a half-day introduction for ages 5 to 8. You can choose mornings (9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.) or afternoons (1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.). Five-year old’s must have completed Grade Primary.
