The HISC Youth Sailing Program was created to provide sailing and boating safety training to children between the ages of 8 and 18. In the past 25+ years we are proud to have trained hundreds of children in small boat handling and 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. The Program is open to anyone who fits the age requirement and can pass a simple swimming evaluation. Safety is the most important issue in our Program therefore each child is required to wear a USCG approved life vest and a safety lecture begins each meeting. During the instructional sailing on the lake, 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 Optimist Pram is the largest sailing class in the world and is considered to be the premier training platform.
Participant must have closed toe water shoes, life vest, water and sunsceen, but most importantly the desire to go sailing.
We will be launching near the Splash Adventure Park in the Southern most lake. When you enter the park, after the kiosks take a left and proceed to the Splash Adventure Park past the Main Office.
