Embark on a voyage for fun! Sailing will not only take you places but it will expand your horizons!
This course is the perfect primer or refresher for nearly 80% of our students. In addition to top-notch instruction, students receive US Sailing's Basic Keelboat Student book and a 50+ page comprehensive student packet designed specifically for our keelboat program at Downtown Sailing. Our two-day courses are listed as "12 hours" but each course runs two days, from 9AM to 5PM.
Experienced instructors teach the fundamentals of water safety, rigging a boat, wind direction, sail theory, points of sail, and even how to rescue a person if they fall overboard. Upon successful completion of this course, students will feel comfortable on a boat and have the skills to crew on a 23-foot boat with an experienced skipper.
