Power Pram Beginner - This is the introductory sailing class for 7-9 year olds. In Pram Beginner, students will learn the basics of boating safety, nomenclature, rigging, sail control and steering. Prams are small, learn-to-sail boats that prepare sailors for the more complicated Optimist. Students are recommended to sign up for Pram Beginner with a friend. Students will sail with a partner until they are comfortable on their own.

Power Pram Experienced - 
Prerequisite: Pram Beginner 
Pram Experienced is the class for sailors who have completed Pram Beginner, and feel confident and capable of being in a boat alone and sailing alone. Students will build upon their confidence and sailing skills. Proper docking techniques, rigging, seamanship and the ability to sail a triangular course will be mastered before advancing into Optis. Students should take Pram Experienced until they are age eligible for Opti Experienced.
