Lake Sebago provides an amazing environment in which all levels of sailors are able to be challenged and can develop their skills. From their first lessons in balancing and moving safely in the boats, through learning the names and function of different parts of the boats and how to effectively work the jib sail, through to earning their racing skipper award as seniors and representing Wawenock in regattas with other camps, girls are exposed to a wide variety of wind and water conditions. The sailing program is designed to include girls of mixed experience levels sailing together in regular classes – as this way they can each work towards a variety of skills for different levels. While some in class are gaining experience trimming the jib and avoiding the swinging boom, others who have demonstrated this proficiently are building their understanding of tiller work and leading their crew. Every class is designed to teach specific sailing skills to individuals within the class at different levels. Staff set marks to facilitate teaching the daily points, based on current wind and water conditions, so all campers are learning the theory of tacking, jibing, points of sail, racing rules, etc.
