While it seems very counterintuitive to sailing, there is such a thing as too much wind!!! Strong, gusty winds can make handling a sailboat difficult, even for a very seasoned sailor. It can be both dangerous, and frankly, frightening, for a child just learning to sail to be out in a strong wind. To this end, our instructors are constantly evaluating the weather, wind, and skill of the sailors in each session to make a judgement on whether to sail or not. It can be very disheartening, and tiring, for smaller kids to spend a whole afternoon capsizing, struggling to right their boat, only to have it go over the other way!! Please be assured that we do our best to make sure that on land lessons are still continuing, any games we play are sailing based and work to further their knowledge, and in the event of a prolonged bad weather event – any movie they may watch will be both age appropriate, and hopefully sailing based!!!
