Sailors begin or continue working on their understanding of sailing and beginning boat handling skills at Camp Kachina on Lake Belton. This includes the basics of sailing departing from land, steering, turning, stopping/starting while out on the water, and returning to shore. Sailors are encouraged, but not required, to take Fundamentals Level 1 more than once to improve their skills and confidence. Sailors must have attended a prior Mariner event, such as Ground School, Lets Go Sailing!, or Introduction to Sailing. Sailors will have time to practice their skills and may have the opportunity to test on one or more skills.
*If your sailor has equivalent experience, please contact Mariners at before signing up.
