Kent Lake Practice Sails


Student PS Information and Request for Mentor Sail

We offer Practice Sails at Kent Lake on 4 days a week. Organized practice sales, called Wet’n’Wild Wednesdays(on hold),or Sunday Drive, Party Tuesdays and Thundering Thursdays(by appointment only) are held all summer long. A student can just come out to Kent Lake on during these events and sail with a rated member. Thou its best to get on the e-mail list.

Other days and times are possible for one on one PS, just email us.

At Kent Lake as a student be sure to get on the email list for any and all days you want to practice. Wet and wild Wednesday is just “drop in”(on hold). The Mentor or practice sail organizer for that day will send out weekly emails asking for who might be coming. if you think your coming its best to let us know. That way we can try to have a good mix of rated and students ahead of time. At Kent we rig the boat at the slip and paddle over to the dock (its different at Stony). No boat is allowed to sail out of the slip. Depending on the wind you will launch off that part of the dock. Typically there will be an experienced Dock Master and you will take their instruction and help.

Dock Masters receive volunteer hours. Its a great way to help the club and learn by watching others. Students need to ask a mentor to show them the ropes of dock mastering. After passing your L1 you can and should volunteer to dock master especially during class and practice sail times. Contact Anne O our Dock Master Manager for instructions and a date yo can come help. More details will be given in class or just ask us.
