2022 Summer Classes
Oak Harbor Youth Sailing's summer sailing classes are a fun way to learn how to sail, hone skills, and experience time on the water with friends. All classes are taught by US Sailing Level 1 Certified Instructors.

swim checks and capsize drills for all
participants. Participants must be able to
swim with a life jacket on and be
comfortable in the water.
