Our newly redesigned Acorn programs better suit the serious athlete yet still cater to the needs of novice sailors. Our trainees include campaigning olympians all the way down to high school sailors who just want a summer of training to come back strong in the fall. While these programs are open to all abilities and ages over 15 years old, programs are typically a good mix of younger sailors and adults.
Our programs are built around flexibility: in the Acorn program, some days are all sailing; others are focused on race prep, classroom activities or physical fitness; many are a combination of the two.
Trainees in the Acorn programs live at the Oakcliff Bunkhouse for the duration of the program (if not offshore). The Oakcliff facilities include gender-separated bunk rooms with room for up to eight trainees each, showers, communal bathrooms and a fully equipped kitchen and living room space.
