LIMITED SPACE AVAILABLE!

This exciting introduction to sailing takes place at the Privateer Yacht Club on Lake Chickamauga and is designed for beginners who want to learn the fundamentals of sailing and those who have had some sailing experience and want to improve their technique. Each session will include land-based classroom learning (such as knots, the parts of a sailboat, steering into the wind and away from it, and how to rig the boat), as well as on the water instruction (including safety procedures, righting a swamped boat, sailing between points no matter what the wind direction, and refining individual techniques.) By the end of the week, you will have the knowledge and skill to guide your own boat around a marked course across the lake.

We will provide lunch each day.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Each camper who attends our sailing camp must know how to swim and be comfortable in the water. Part of the sailing experience is being able to “right” one’s overturned boat. Windy conditions make for powerful forces on a small boat, and this can be a fearful experience as one learns to control an Optimist sailboat. It is not a camp for those who aren’t already swimmers.

More information on our instructors:
Privateer Yacht Club will have two instructors who are US Sailing Certified Level One.

Steve George (McCallie School, ret.) is US Sailing Certified and has supervised the McCallie Sailing Program for many years. Steve is very interested in teaching the fundamentals of sailing to lots of kids and has signed on to assist with the Baylor program this year.

Lucas Kindervater will also work as coach and will be US Sailing Certified before our sessions begin. Lucas is presently a student at UT. He grew up in The Virgin Islands and actively raced in Opti Prams.

WHAT TO BRING:
Each camper must bring their own life jacket (Type 3 is preferable: three straps across the front). The life jacket should fit snugly and not be oversized. Vests must be worn while sailing, swimming, and walking the docks.
Each camper must have appropriate footwear. Aquasocks or other shoes than can easily get wet are highly recommended for sailing camp. (NO SANDALS PLEASE – ALL SHOES MUST HAVE A CLOSED TOE!)

Additional Equipment:
Towel
Wear a swim suit along with shorts and a t-shirt
Sunscreen (remember to apply before camp)
Aquasocks or shoe that can get wet. (NO SANDALS PLEASE – ALL SHOES MUST HAVE A CLOSED TOE!)
Water bottle that can be carries on the boat
Camp will meet each day, Monday through Friday, rain, shine or no wind.
Note: it might be a good idea to check for chiggers or ticks at the end of each day, for we will be in an outdoor environment.

WHERE TO GO:
DROP OFF:
Starting at 8 a.m., please bring your camper to WEEKS Hall, Classroom 101. The bus will depart EXACTLY at 8:30 am.

PICK UP:
The bus will arrive back on Baylor’s Campus between 4 - 4:15 p.m. Please meet (and sign your child out) in the same location as morning drop off.
Each camper will receive a Baylor Sailing Camp t-shirt.

RULES AND REGULATIONS:
Because safety is the foundation of our whole camp, it is imperative that each camper follows our guidelines to the letter. Should we have a problem in this area or another, we will phone the parent and ask that the child be picked up at the Privateer Yacht Club by noon. A continuing problem could mean dismissal from the sailing camp.
Baylor's Sailing Camp will take place at Privateer Yacht Club on Lake Chickamauga. Click here for directions to Privateer Yacht club.
