ADVENTURE SAILING

For intermediate sailors 11 years and older. The goal for this class is to learn adventuring skills such as navigation, docking, and mooring landings. This is a non-race oriented class where students are expected to take the helm, trim the sails, navigate, and learn seamanship skills. 

 

Beginners and Intermediates use J22s, and Collegiate 420s. More advanced sailors will be spinnaker flying on J22s and may try windsurfing or even foiling. Typical class will separate the students into "crews" of 3-5 based on age and sailing ability, each crew will start with instructor in the boat. This a full day class so pack a lunch!​
