Shoreline Lake’s sailing program is in full swing, and now the program has nine new instructors who can share their time and knowledge with students. “A big round of applause for the grads please!!!” wrote Shoreline’s press manager. The grads completed the Level 1 US Sailing Small Boat Instructor Certification course, which was hosted by Shoreline Lake on June 16-18.
The three-day course is open to people with varying levels of expertise, and “is strongly recommended for anyone involved in camp counseling, coaching, and teaching beginner level sailors. It covers intensive training requirements, including Teaching and Coaching Fundamentals and obtaining a NASBLA Approved Boating Certificate.”
Shoreline Lake offers this certification and a variety of US Sailing-recognized class certifications to anyone over the age of 14, from February through November. They also offer advanced and performance-sailing summer camps suitable for teen participants.
But the facility isn’t only for the big kids. While those sailors were gaining their certifications, the younger crew have been on the water having a whale of a time in Bugs. Check out these little sailboats. How cute are they!?
Each Bug can hold two to three 7- to 9-year-olds as they work together to maneuver through the water and harness the wind. Oh, to be that age and have access to these little boats!
Shoreline has much to offer over the coming weeks, and we believe there are still a few spaces left for some of the classes and activities.
