Campers this year are learning plenty of skills, from rigging a boat to reading the wind, while they look to advance from crew, to skipper, to admiral.  “I really love to steer the boat,” said Tess.  “It’s fun to use the tiller.”

Like all morning classes, sailing is coed, which Peter B certainly enjoys.  “I like hanging out with the C.I.T.’s.  They’re nice and you learn stuff from them.”

The camp sailors, and the Laser® and Laser2® boats will be tested several times over the summer in both all camp and inter-camp competitions, and possibly a regatta on Lake Champlain.
