While we do have a strict life jacket policy and recreational swimming is not a regular part of our programs, for safety reasons Courageous Sailing requires that all youth program sailors be able to swim 75 feet (any stroke, even dog-paddle) and tread water, unassisted, for 90 seconds.
As proof of your child's or children's swimming ability, a photocopy of one of the items listed below must be submitted by June 15:
* YMCA: Certificate of completion for Fish Level and/or Level 5 or above
* Red Cross: Certificate of Completion for Level V or above
* Boy/Girl Scouts: Swimming or Lifesaving Merit Badge
* Courageous Sailing Swim Form
If your child has participated in a Courageous Sailing program in the past, there is no need to submit another swim form as we should have it on file.
