Sailing

Overview

Being able to sail your own little boat is a BIG achievement. Many children, as young as 7 years, are now taking the bold step of learning how to sail the Optimist and the fact that 7-year-olds can sail on their own shows how easy and safe sailing can be.

Young sailors learn discipline, independence, team spirit, problem-solving, decision-making and many other traits that are essential in life besides skills that are needed to sail their boats. It is an all-rounded activity and is a sport that will last a lifetime.

Beginners, as young as Pri.1, will have to undergo a basic sailing course with an external sailing club and attain first the Basic Sailing certification followed by the Opti-Sailor certification and then the Opti-Racer certification before they are eligible to join the School Sailing CCA in Pri.2.

Sailors with outstanding performance (based on their Singapore Sailing Federation ranking) and demonstrate school values will be selected to represent the school in the National Primary Schools Sailing Championships.
