The HISC Youth Sailing Program was created to provide sailing, boating and water safety training to children between the ages of 8 and 18. Over the past 20+ years, we are proud to have trained hundreds of children in small boat handling and water safety issues. The HISC Youth Sailing Program is staffed with sailing and organization specialists who are all volunteering their time and effort to enhance the sport of sailing and to provide invaluable experience and training to children. Our Instructors are US Sailing Certified. The program is open to anyone who fits the age requirement and can pass a swimming evaluation. Safety is the most important issue in our Program; we open every session with a safety lecture and each child is required to wear a USCG approved life vest. During the instructional sailing on the lake, the HISC instructors use small rowboats to provide on-the-water training and an enhanced level of safety. The children sail small one-person type boats including International Optimist pram, Sunfish and Laser. These boats were selected because of safety and ease of instruction. The HISC’s Youth Sailing has about 25 children. During the normal weekend training, approximately 70 people will visit your park. We find the beach area south of the Splash Adventure area provides the best access for both sailing and safety.
There will only be a program this day if any of the other days in the session are cancelled due to weather.
