Who should take this course?
Sailors who have completed 1st-8th grade (Age 7-13), with some pram sailing experience that have expressed an interest in solo sailing, especially those that may not be interested in our Pram Race or are looking for more practice first. The most important aspect to determine between Pram Camp and Pram Solo is your student’s confidence - ask them! Are they excited? Are they ok with working through mistakes? Trial and error? If yes - Pram Solo is for them!
What is this course? What will they Learn?
Pram Solo can be both a stand-alone repeatable camp, or a transition course between Pram Camp and our Pram Race. Sailors will learn the skills needed to control a sailboat alone, including: using a tiller extension, trimming properly, maneuvering within the boat. All while sailing off on longer destination type sails. This course was started as a transition from prams to our racing classes, but has since become the stomping ground of pram sailors who love to simply adventure and explore the lake. New adventures and destinations weekly, repeat sessions are encouraged!
What do we need to bring?
Students must bring their own lunches and snacks as well as a lifejacket, water bottle, change of clothes, water shoes, sun protection, and towel.
What course should my child take next?
Experienced instructors monitor your child’s capabilities and teach skills appropriate to their level as they master greater skills. If your student has completed this class before and is interested in a more challenging course, consider Pram Race.
** A morning only option is available for those taking Pram Race in the afternoon, allowing for a full day of fun.
