Kids and Crew

New in 2023‚ our Kids and Crew Program puts any mix of family members (two or three per boat) aboard our fun fleet of Catalina 14.2 centerboard sailboats to play games‚ build team skills and practice fun racing. A crew might be made of a daughter and a dad‚ a grandson and a grandmother‚ or a son‚ a daughter and their mom.

With an emphasis on fun‚ these family groups learn to rig and launch the boats‚ recover from capsize‚ experience adventure on the water‚ work together to solve problems‚ practice a variety of sailing maneuvers and safety skills‚ sail to Milwaukee harbor destinations‚ and learn new sailing games.

Optionally‚ Kids and Crew Teams are automatically entered to sail in the Kids and Crew Class of the Mid-Season Championship Regatta‚ to be held (weather permitting) on Sunday July 16th. If there is ample interest in participation in this supplemental event‚ some course time will be given over to learning and practicing basic racing skills.

While the water will be cool (not icy)‚ expect to get wet in this class either from spray‚ splashing or possible capsize.

** Kids 8-17 should have prior sailing experience at MCSC in either Prams Level 1 or Youth Level 1 and have a requisite swim test on file.
** Parents should have at least a Light Air rating and be prepared themselves to swim.

This course will be held with up to 8 boats on the water‚ each with up to 3 people. Members of the same family will sail together. The fee for each participant is $80.
