Model Opti Sailboat Build 04/14/2020 06:00 PM - 04/22/2020 09:00 PM ET

In this class woodworker and boatbuilder Andy Willner will take you step by step through the process of building a model Opti sailboat from a kit. The International Optimist Dinghy, or Opti as it is commonly called, is the most popular child sail training boat ever. Most sailors have their first sailing experiences in this boat and we have a fleet of our own for the Youth Sailing program. We will build the model from a kit produced by Blue Jacket Shipcrafters. More info about the kit can be found at the Blue Jacket website HERE. Families who wish to build one model with 2 persons will only have to purchase one kit, but will have to pay the additional Joint Tuition.Dates: April 14-15 & 21-22, 2020 (Tuesday & Wednesday evenings, 4 evenings total)6PM to 9PMREGISTRATION DEADLINE: April 1, 2020Tuition: General Registration: $175, Individual Member Registration: $160, Household Member & Above: $150Material Kit: $150Joint Instruction Tuition: $100Joint InstructionFriends or family of a student are welcome to participate in the class as a 2nd builder on the construction of a single kit.
