After an unexpected week where we had to close down the sailing school for 3 days, we are happy and excited to announce that we can safely run the clinics in the next 2 weeks.

Our team sat down, made a plan, re designed what ever is left of our dock and will be ready to sail next week!

First of all,

There are no regular sailing classes. As communicated to you before, the sailing school closes in the time around the Sint Maarten Heineken Regatta. As there is no Regatta this year, we've decided to run clinics to keep all our sailors involved and motivated.

The regular program will resume on Monday the 15th of March.

Because of the damage on our dock we are only able to use a reduced amount of boats in our fleet.

That's why we needed to adjust the clinic program as well;


1. Team racing;

Wed. 3 March

For the advanced Optimist Sailors we will organize a clinic in Team Racing. 

Minimum of 4 - max participants - 6.


2. Capsizing; 

Thurs. 4th of March

As we have a lot of the sailors in the program that recently started sailing; we would like to get the kids more comfortable being in and around their boat in the water. We will take Optimists and Laser Pico's to Kim Sha beach where our instructors can stand in the water and help their kids practice the capsizing routine. Capsizing isn't scary, it's fun! 

We strongly recommend the youngest sailing of our program to join this clinic.

Maximum of 10


3. Beach Sail; 

Friday 5th of March 

We go on a fun sail to one of the beaches around the lagoon or Simpson Bay with Optimists and Pico's. 

Minimum of 4 - Max participants; 9


4. Gennaker Class (RS QUEST) 

Wed. 10 March

For RS Sailors we will organize a Asymetric Spinnaker (Gennaker) Class. 

Minimum of 4 - max participants; 10


5. Advanced Racing (Laser and RS Quest) 

Thurs. 11 March

Maximum of 10.


6. Introduction to racing for Optimist and Laser Pico.

Friday 12 March

Minimum of 4 - max participants; 9

We will ask for your flexibility as we are challenged by the circumstances, but we are very sure we can operate in a safe and fun way.

We will make it work and are excited to be back on the water this soon.
