Does my child need to know how to swim?
Yes, our boats are small dinghies and therefore a basic swimming ability is required. Dinghies help youth develop into confident sailors and are a lot of fun. However, they are wet and the students need to be comfortable in the water.
High Standards of Safety: Safety is our highest priority at ACSC. All instructors are certified through US Sailing and also hold CPR and First Aid Certification.
