Sailing 4: Introduction to Keelboats

This course is intended for those who are interested in learning more about keelboats.  Keelboats are often popular with those looking for a more relaxed sailing experience since they are more comfortable and more stable than dinghies.  Topics covered will include different types of keelboats; launching and retrieving a keelboat from a trailer; rigging and de-rigging; departing and returning to dock under sail;  helming (steering); crewing; communicating and safety.  Students will have the opportunity to get practice in a keelboat (3 students and one instructor per boat).

  • Prerequisites: This class is open to students who have completed either the Sailing 1 or Sailing 2 classes or have equivalent sailing experience. Must be 18 or older.
  • Cost:  $150
