It’s a great time for kids to learn to sail. Beaufort Community Sailing & Boating (BCSB), a non-profit initiative of the Beaufort Yacht and Sailing Club (BYSC), just launched its Fall 2020 Optis Program for Beginners.

BCSB Board Member Paul Keyserling and BYSC Activities Director Danielle Feerst teamed up to teach the course.

Designed for ages 8 to 13, the program runs 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Mondays through Oct. 26.

“The BYSC will host 10 junior sailors from our local community,” Danielle said. Through the program, the kids will learn to sail, advance their sail handling skills, and start the beginnings of Opti Racing.”

For more information on this program OR to have your child get on our waitlist for the spring, email Danielle.
