BASIC KEELBOAT 101 CERTIFICATION

Beginners start here!

Our certified instructors will take you from landlubber to experienced skipper capable of handling 20′ – 27′ sloop-rigged keelboat by day, in light to moderate winds and sea conditions. It is a hands-on class, spending 80% of your time on the water. You steer the boat and you trim the sails.

Our training sessions are lively, interactive, and designed to help you retain the theory so it will always be there to enhance your sailing enjoyment on the water. We have classes structured for those who have never sailed, as well as, those who are looking to strengthen basic skills or to become certified.

Classes are 9am-5pm with a 1 hour lunchbreak

We sail on 22′ Daysailors.
