Sail 2: Building Skills

Sail 2 is group class taught on 14-ft two-sail Holder dinghies or similar boats. Each class has 4 sessions that are 3 hours in duration. This class builds on the basics of Sail 1 with a focus on improving boat handling, working with a jib sail, docking and communication. Each session will have a brief lecture followed by on-the-water sailing practice. Students who complete this class, demonstrate a successful capsize recovery and join LMSA will be allowed to use the Holder sailboats for practice for the remainder of the season. 

Limited to 8 students per session. Additional students may be accommodated if they have their own boat.
