About the Experience:

This course is part of a three-week travel program held summer 2020. This is an introductory physical education instructor’s course (beginner) aimed at those with an interest in learning sailing instruction. By the end of the course, students should be able to teach safely, effectively and with enthusiasm. The goal is to provide highly qualified instructors who can immediately work at sailing programs such as campus sailing clubs and camps, teaching young sailors from middle school to college freshmen.
