Blue group students sail the RS Feva class dingy, a two-handed boat. The curriculum is again based on the US Sailing Beginning Small Boat Sailor program. Sailors continue to refine their basic sailing skills, including points of sail, boat handling, marine and boat safety, and rigging and de-rigging their new boats. Students also begin to learn the basics of sailing racing. A major goal of the Blue group sailing curriculum is teamwork and problem solving.
The academic portion of the second year curriculum is based on the CT State standards in Mathematics (6th and 7th grade). The program teaches these standards in relation to sailing, focusing on timing, coordinate work, geometry, charting and solving for variables. There is also a literary component, with students reading and discussing relevant non-fiction articles.
