The Tod’s Point Junior Program is unique. It is made up of a Core Curriculum and a variety of supplementary Specialty Courses.

The Core Curriculum is the gold standard in learn-to-sail programming. It is what Tod’s Point is known for. Core courses fill quickly. It is where juniors truly learn to sail. Properly. Safely. Thoroughly. Hands-on. It is for ages 9-16. Most juniors spread out their coursework over 2 or 3 seasons.

The Core is comprised of 4 progressive 2-week courses. All courses are repeated every two weeks throughout the summer, so juniors may start in any session. They may also take a break between courses and enroll in the next level course in any later session – or in any following season. Just take the Core courses in order, because each course is a prerequisite to the next. Core courses meet Monday through Friday, 3 hours per day, for a total of 30 hours each.

When juniors successfully complete the full Core Curriculum, they will have four diplomas to proudly display. And they will have completed an impressive 120 hours of progressive non-repeating instruction.

Sailing One

Sailing One is the gateway course and foundation of the Core Curriculum.

Sailing Two

Sailing Two is built on the Sailing One foundation. We sail in bigger, double-handed, sloop-rigged RS Quests.

Sailing Three

Sailing Three is a significant step up. It takes sailing fun to the next level. It is best for kids 10 and up weighing over 90 lbs.

Sailing Four

Sailing Four is serious fun and another big step up. It is a tremendous confidence builder for juniors 12 and up, weighing at least 95 lbs.
