Sailing for Kids
Sailing is a fantastic summertime activity for kids. We partner with the Mount Crested Butte Parks and Recreation department (Mountain Adventures), to offer two outings per week for children. Typically, we spend the first part of the morning exploring the lake and its wealth of scenic inlets. We find a secluded anchorage and let the children swim and have lunch. Kids then get a chance to be exposed to sailing. They’ll learn how to raise the main, unfurl the genoa, use a winch, trim the sails, and take the helm. These outings have proven hugely popular and fill up very quickly.
Cost: $50 per child
Time: 9am-3:30pm, Wednesdays and Thursdays (June 13th-August 14th)
