Where do I go for classes?
All programs will be held at the Center, located next to the Moran Building at 234 Penny Lane Burlington Vermont just north of the Coast Guard Station and the Fishing Pier.
Directions: To get to the Center, head towards the lake on Main Street. Go straight at the intersection of Battery Street. At the next stop sign, take a right and proceed straight. Bear slightly left to cross the railroad tracks and go straight between the two brick buildings. The Sailing Center is located at the northern end of the parking lot.
What if it’s raining?
While we will never go out on the water if the weather is dangerous, rain alone is not considered dangerous. We meet at scheduled times, regardless of the weather. Be sure to bring a rain jacket and/or a pull-over you don’t mind getting wet.
Do I have to know how to swim?
No. Every participant will wear a life jacket while on dock, boat, and board.
What should I bring?
The weather in New England, and especially Northern Vermont, is notoriously shifty. Please be prepared to “weather” conditions that range from 75° F, bright sunshine and no wind, to 48° in a rain squall with 18 knots of wind. Please bring what you need to be warm and comfortable.
Everyone should bring:
– 1 quart of drinking water (minimum) in a reusable water bottle
– Sunscreen (we have extra if needed)
– Shoes secured at the heel and appropriate for getting wet (old sneakers work well, chacos, tevas – flip flops do not)
– Insulating layer: fleece vest, jacket or sweater
– Rain jacket or windbreaker
– Snack (as needed by individual)
