SAILING SCHOOL

Basic Keelboat

  • (ASA 101 Part 1 Certification)
  • Is our introductory course designed to bring the novice student into the world of sailing. We begin with a brief 30 minute in-class lecture on sailing theory and boat handling then head down to the boats. Our emphasis is on practical boat handling and seamanship so nearly all of the class is taught on the water. This two day course covers the basics of how a sailboat moves and what it takes to operate. On the very first day the students learn how to set up a sailboat and steer on a desired course. By the end of the second day our students can handle all the maneuvers required to get a sailboat to any chosen destination. Upon completion of Basic keel boat one our students are considered competent crew and are prepared to advance to basic keel boat sailing two and our nationally recognized sailing certification.

Basic Keelboat II

  • (ASA 101 Part 1 Certification)
  • Is the second half of our American Sailing Association certification program. This two day class covers more advanced sailing techniques and maneuvers while reinforcing the skills gained in basic keel-boat sailing one. Aside from a brief introduction the entire class is taught on the water giving students as much sailing time as possible to learn. Upon completion of basic keel-boat sailing two not only do our students receive the nationally recognized ASA certification but also the confidence to operate a sailboat on the San Francisco Bay.
