Summer Program


Our Junior Program is offered to Hull Yacht Club members who are between the ages of 8-18yrs. Children must be at least 8 years old by the start of the program. This is a full summer, 8 week program. We have beginner and advanced classes. You must have an Opti to participate in this program. (The Junior Jailing program can help you find or lease an Opti – email us for details.)

In order to participate in the Junior Sail full summer program you must be a Hull Yacht Club member.  There is a reduced price Junior Sailing membership for $395.00 that provides all the benefits of yacht club membership.

Opti Beginner Program: 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM

The Opti Beginner class is for children who have little to no sailing experience. Sailors are taught in small groups and will learn boat rigging, points of sail, basic sail trim, and boat safety. When complete, the sailor will be able to demonstrate basic helm, trim, and water awareness skills.

Opti Advanced Program: 1:00 PM – 4:30 PM

The Opti Advanced class is designed for sailors who have completed the Opti Beginner program and feel comfortable sailing in the higher winds that are typical in the afternoon hours. The curriculum includes sportsmanship, boat maintenance, basic navigation, and racing rules and tactics. We recognize that this class will include sailors of varying levels and it is our goal to challenge each sailor at his or her level. Interested sailors will receive race training and be encouraged to represent Hull Yacht Club in local regattas.

420 Race: 1:00 PM – 4:30 PM

This class is intended for experienced 420 sailors. The curriculum includes sportsmanship, sail trim for speed, regatta preparation, boat maintenance, racing rules, team and fleet racing with area Clubs, and tactics. As representatives of Hull Yacht Club, the 420 racing team will compete in local and regional regattas. The 420’s are available for charter to our 420 sailors at $275 per sailor (2 sailors per boat) for the season. Through the generous support of donors, Sail Nantasket, a 501c3 non-profit, was able to acquire the fleet of 420’s and Opti’s. The care and maintenance of these boats is a priority. Damage to the boats or equipment will be the responsibility of the users. Willful neglect or damage will result in immediate removal from the program.

Lunch Hour: We have a shared lunch hour that all the kids in Learn To Sail and Summer Program are welcome to join, a great time for the kids to socialize, swim or run in the park. If your child will participate in the lunch hour, a parent must sign up to cover several lunches. This keeps kids safe and gives you a great opportunity to meet the other families.
