Harbor Mice

Learn to sail optimist for beginner youth sailors 7 to 11 years old.


2020 Spring Clinic:  March - May

 Dates:         
 March   21st/22nd      28th/29th       
 April   4th/5th    18th/19th   25th/26th  
 May   2nd/3rd    9th/10th   16th/17th  
 
This Spring, we're going to attempt to split the Harbor Mice Group in an A and B class.  Both classes will run concurrently, on the same dates at the same times.  There will be no price difference between the two groups, and both classes will generally move together throughout the day and interact with each other when possible.  Splitting the group by experience will help the new sailors focus on the things they need to learn, while allowing sailors who may have already learned the new information the opportunity to move forward more quickly.

Please select "Harbor Mice Class A" in the registration form if your child has participated more than one clinic Session (Fall and Spring, etc), or more than one session of Harbor Mice in Summer Camp.

Please Select "Harbor Mice Class B" in the registration form if your child has never done Harbor Mice, or only participated in one clinic session (Fall only, Spring Only, etc), or has only participated in one Summer Camp Session.
