Sailing I is for ages 18 and older. Participants will learn about types of boats, launching techniques, docking, maintenance, and safety. Basic swimming skills are required. To find this program in the My JCPRD Activities catalog and online listings, browse first under adult and then nature & outdoors. In the printed catalog and when using the website’s advanced search, look for the keyword “boating.” 

Sailing I consists of two indoor lecture sessions and four water sessions. The indoor sessions will take place beginning at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, June 25,  and Thursday, June 27, at  the JCPRD Administration Building near the entrance to Shawnee Mission Park, 7900 Renner Road, Shawnee and Lenexa. The water sessions will take place at 9 a.m. on four consecutive Saturdays beginning June 29 at the Shawnee Mission Park Boat Ramp. The cost for a total of six two-hour sessions is $76 per person for Johnson County residents or $83 per person for nonresidents.
