Derby’s new sailing club has students cruising Hingham Harbor this fall.
Continuing the School’s partnership with the Hingham Maritime Center, students in Grades 2-8 meet once a week to experience the thrill of sailing the harbor while advancing their sailing abilities.
Launching from the docks of the Hingham Maritime Center, club members learn the technical aspects of operating a sailboat, which include instruction in navigation and steering techniques, and proper handling of boat equipment. Lead by sailing professionals, the club also reviews water safety and responsible behavior on the docks.
The club expands on Derby’s current Rowing Club program and Crew team while offering a new opportunity for students to enjoy all the aspects of being outdoors on the water.
