Sailing is a fantastic sport for the family. We would really like it if you could stay around. We will need one parent per session to stay as a beach master. The beach master parent will have the opportunity as a parent to learn a lot about the sport and the best of all, help your sailor much more with his/her sailing course by understanding how things work. It will be a beach master roster so all the parents can have a turn on a different lesson. 

Please email the coach with the days and times when you can be available toget a the great beach master person!
