Class Schedules:

Classes are every Tuesday and Thursday from 3:30 pm to 8:00 pm. Other dates are available upon request but are based on the class group.

 

Required for Class:

  • Some sailing experience.

  • Sailing Gloves. I would recommend leather gloves that have open fingertips are the best. Keep them oiled to increase the life of the gloves.

  • Sailing PFD (Lifejacket) Type V that inflates into a Type III is recommended. We will have life jackets on during the class and the ones provided are a bit bulky for the class.

  • Layers of clothing including a foul weather jacket.

  • Be prepared to be moving about the yacht so there will be some strenuous activity.

 

Upon Completion:

  • You will receive a signed hour sheet that is recognized by the United States Coast Guard.

  • A certificate of completion from Sailors Academy.

 

You will learn:

  • Advanced steering techniques in all points of sail.

  • Storm and rough weather sailing.

  • Proper trimming for all of the points of sail.

  • How to reef the sail properly and in all types of conditions.

  • How to use all the equipment on a yacht properly to improve your sailing. Travelers, Boom Vangs, Jib Sheet Cars, Tell Tails, etc.

  • How to use your senses to observe the water, wind and other objects in or around the water to sail.
