Like sailing? Want to work or volunteer on a waterfront? This course is designed to prepare camp counselors and staff from community sailing, boat rental, and scouting programs to supervise small boat recreational sailing activities. The emphasis is on safety and hands-on practice to familiarize candidates with proper terminology and boating techniques. Participants should have some prior exposure to sailing but need not be experts. 

Over the course of three days, participants can complete Sailing Counselor, and achieve certification in US Sailing Safety and Rescue.


Course begins Friday, 5/2 at noon.  Depending on experience and need, students can sign-up for one or both courses which are effectively taught in tandem.

The minimum age for attending this course is 14 years old.This course will be taught by a certified US Sailing instructor trainer from Pittsburgh. It is co-sponsored by Friends of Yellow Creek and the IUP Sailing Club. There is a US Sailing fee associated with this course.
