Grand Lake Sailing!
Summer 2016 Sailing Lessons
We had a grand time with our sailing lessons this past summer and are looking forward to a wonderful time in 2016.
Our 2015 Optimist dinghy sailing lessons for youth from age 8 were offered, using the certified instructors from the Alpena Youth Sailing Club and their Opti dinghies. Our five, half day, lesson schedule provided youth an introduction to sailing as well as the camaraderie of learning sailing with their peers.For Summer 2016 Grand Lake Sailing will once again include a week with a morning of introductory sailing lessons using Optimist dinghys and an afternoon of JY15 Racing instruction using the JY15 sailboat. These are boats with dual sails, main and jib. They are safe and fun to sail. As with the introductory lessons, these were taught by certified instructors from the Alpena Youth Sailing Club with the assistance of several sailors from near Grand Lake. This week of instruction allowed for more intergenerational sailing experiences.
If demand indicates we need more time we can extend the program into the following week. Adult and family sessions can be offered if demand warrants.
