Beginning Sailboat Racing

Find out more about sailboat racing and get hands-on/on the water experience with the fundamentals. This class is intended for those who have never raced sailboats or have minimal experience racing. You will learn racing rules and participate in races using club dinghies and catamarans. If you are a newer sailor, racing is the fastest way to improve your sailing skills. We highly recommend this class to those who have taken the Sail 1 class and are looking for more sailing experience. 

Limited to 10 students. Additional students may be accommodated if they have their own boat.
