Buddy-Based Sailing Camps

Buddy-Based Sailing Camps | Ages 7-17

If your sailor has a sibling, family member, or friend who they could sail in a boat WITH and with whom social distancing measures will not need to be enforced, this camp is the perfect fit. With 2-3 self-designated children per boat, we would be able to safely teach new sailors the fundamentals together without compromising water safety. With a total group capacity of 8 participants, as an example, this class would be comprised potentially of up to 4 pairs of students. Each pair will continue to practice social distancing from each other pair, but not be forced to socially distance themselves from their own chosen partner. This camp will focus on teaching to the level of your sailors as best as possible so it is great for first-time sailors and returning sailors alike!

IMPORTANT: All participants need to bring a lunch, enough water to last the entire day, bathing suit, towel, change of clothes, hat, sunscreen, sunglasses, and water shoes. We encourage the use of personal life jackets (PFDs) and helmets. If this is not an option for you we will be providing this equipment for your sailor. Helmets and PFD’s will be assigned to one individual for the duration of camp and sanitized daily.

Race Team

Race Team (formerly Junior & High School Race Team)

Don’t be intimidated, the CSC Racing Program is a great way for any of our Advanced or Intro to Advanced campers to quickly pick up racing basics while learning to sail with peers. Sailors are encouraged but not mandated to participate in competitive regattas (sailing races) both in and out of state. Competitive sailing here in Colorado is a great pathway to lead young athletes toward college sailing and beyond.

Advanced sailors develop the talents to become skilled sailboat racers. Independence and critical thinking are at the heart of the race team. Sailors work together on and off the water to establish a solid foundation of knowledge; including: the racing rules of sailing, advanced rigging and sail tuning, advanced sailing techniques, sportsmanship, and strategy. Racing is fun! Sailors learn to work through challenges and rejoice in the triumphs and travails of competitive sport.
