Optimist LTS 2


The Optimist Level 2 Course is designed for children who have completed the Optimist Level 1 Course or have equivalent sailing experience. The course focuses on developing more advanced sailing skills, such as:

  • Docking and undocking

  • Trimming the sails

  • Sailing in a variety of wind conditions

  • Gybing

The course also includes more in-depth instruction on sailing theory, such as:

  • The rules of the road

  • Weather forecasting

  • Boat maintenance

In this eight-week course, you'll learn everything you need to know to sail an Optimist independently, from rigging your boat to steering and trimming your sails. Our experienced coaches will teach you in a safe and fun environment, and they'll help you build the skills and confidence you need to succeed.

Once you've completed the LTS 2 course, you'll be ready to move on to the next level (Optimist LTS 3). Our coaches will work with you to create a personalized sailing pathway that meets your individual needs and goals.
