The Okoboji Yacht Club Sailing School has re-branded to operate under the name Okoboji Sailing Center (OSC). Our purpose in this is to ensure that it is clear that access to the lake and access to high quality sailing and water safety instruction is open to everyone.
The OSC has been teaching youth (and adults) to sail since established in 1973. Programming ranges from introductory class for young sailors ages 6-8 called “Little Puffs” to “Adventure Sailing” a new class that ties in STEM activities to sailing for youth ages 10-16 to “Performance Racing” classes aimed at the more competitive sailors ages 18 and under.
In addition to a name change, the OSC will offer a broader range of classes this year for both competitive and recreational sailors. And, OSC hopes to partner with other local youth-focused organizations including Iowa Lakeside Laboratories, the YMCA, and local school districts to expand the reach and breadth of its programs.
Class registration for the 2018 season will open on December 15, 2017 via the new on-line registration system at our all-new OSC website.
