What you need to know

■ Safety
Yachting is often considered a dangerous water sport. However, if handled properly, it is not particularly dangerous.
At sea, we always wear life jackets, always leave rescue boats, give guidance, and pay attention to safety.
Optimist class has been popular in Japan for nearly 60 years, but it is a safe sport that has not caused a single fatal accident.

​■ Activities of guardians
Our club is a club with a common hobby of sailing. Club members are actively working towards their own goals.

All aspects of boat maintenance, weekly practice at sea, and participating in races are all related to safety, so extreme caution is required, and each club member needs to be supported by an adult. Therefore, in our club, parents support their children, and experienced parents provide professional guidance as coaches. (One parent per child is required to participate)

Parents may find it difficult, but I believe that devoting oneself to one thing with their child will help maintain a healthier parent-child relationship.

Let's enjoy sailing together with ​ parent and child. ​
