Adult Sailing Courses
Learn to Sail – Small Dinghy
In this class, we learn to sail 1-person Topaz Topper dinghies – similar to the Laser class which is sailed competitively in the Olympics. There is a small amount of athleticism required since these boats require you to be moving across them (about 1 meter across) and you should expect to get wet as they are very low to the water. We’ll be focusing on small boat handling skills, such as executing clean tacks, gybes, mark roundings, and how to capsize and right a boat. This course is well suited if you are interested in sailing small centreboard boats or learning to race small boats like the Laser, Zephyr, 470. No experience necessary.
Learn to Sail - Small Dinghy Level 2
This class is a continuation from a previous course where we sailed the Topaz Toppers. Having learned the basics, we will now go over more advanced sailing techniques and learn how to navigate the harbour or learn the rules of sailboat racing. Suitable if you have sailed before and are looking to fine-tune your skills or learning how to race.
Learn to Sail – Crewed Yacht
In this class, we learn to sail a small (approx 5 metre) trailer sailor. We’ll be focusing on learning how to rig our boats, working with others to sail a boat in all conditions, and learning each what each position does in a small keelboat. This course is well suited if you are interested in learning to sail trailer yachts or small keelboats. No experience necessary.
