Tera Bites is for younger kids, a bit too young for the challenging Core Curriculum courses. Tera Bites is a gentle introduction to sailing for 8- and 9-year-olds. It meets daily, Monday through Friday, for two hours each day. It is an off-the-beach sailing experience scheduled around high tide with minimal classroom time.
Tera Bites is named after the boats we use. The Tera is a “tea cup” dinghy, easy to handle, forgiving, and just the right size for aspiring younger sailors.
Every young sailor gets a turn at the helm, taking command of their vessel every day. The fleet of Teras sail just off the beach in shallow water. They are closely supervised by our watchful kid-friendly staff. Parents are always welcome to observe, encourage – and take photos.
Color-coded buoys provide a practice course to develop steering and tacking skills. It is perfect for cautious young juniors needing a gentle intro to sailing. No reading and no final exam. Just fun!
Tera Bites is very popular. Classes fill quickly. Space is strictly limited. We recommend that you claim your spot early.
