We're looking forward to another great summer of sailing school!
*Please* ... help spread the word. We're passionate about getting Green Lake students on the water, and word-of-mouth is our best tool to reach new students.
You should be able to find most everything you need on the updated sailing school website, and hopefully this summer we'll have an option for you to register and pay online as well. Check out the fun photo galleries to remind you what summer looks like despite our currently gloomy outdoor situation :)
In a nutshell, Green Lake students have two opportunities to experience sailing:
1) through the Green Lake Public School Summer School program. This is our 'taste of sailing' program for GL summer school students that meets once per week for the duration of GL summer school. After completing the summer school program, your student is encouraged to join the Beginner Level 1 class through the Sailing School. Cost is $20. Scholarships available.
2) through the Green Lake Sailing School program. Students have three 3-hr classes per week, and will come out of the sailing school program confident in rigging their own boat & sailing independently. Sessions are 3 weeks long - 27 hours of instruction for $80 (that's $3/hr!!!). Family rates & Scholarships are available.
NOTE: The sailing school has four different levels of youth instruction: Beginner I, Beginner II, Intermediate I & Intermediate II. Each level corresponds to different expectations of safe, independent sailing ability and boat type. Levels are not necessarily intended to be immediately progressive; students are encouraged to take a class as often as needed to gain the confidence to sail safely before moving to the next level. Entry into each level is at the instructor's discretion, so please register early to get your level assignment and know where sailing will fit into your schedule!
Beginner classes are M, T, Wed from 9-12
Intermediate classes are M, T, Wed from 1-4
