The goal of this course is to introduce the students to the wonderful sport of sailing. Many people start out in this way and embrace this activity for the rest of their life for recreation or competition.
This course is designed to teach the basics of sailing. Students will be REQUIRED to wear a life jacket while on the water (no exceptions). Each day they may be given a short homework assignment
There is a fee payable upon entrance to the park each day. Call the park or check the website for details (Tel 908 638 8572, or website at www.state.nj.us/dep/parksandforests/parks/spruce.html).If you plan on being at the lake regularly you can purchase a park pass in the ‘toll booth’ office. Otherwise the fee is to be paid each day – parents for youth learn-to-sail, please hold onto your morning receipt so you can reenter the park without additional cost later in the day.
