Event Navigation

Our Introduction to Keelboat Sailing course is designed to take you from novice to sailor in four classes. You will learn about the wind clock, how to tack, gybe & tiller steer, how to rig our J/24 Keelboats with a main sail, jib & genoa, and crew-overboard recovery.

Keelboats are a heavier bigger style of sailboat with a weighted keel, these boats are sturdy under high winds, and carry momentum. Our keelboats do not have motors which means you will learn how to sail to and from a mooring buoy. This class is great for people interested in cruising and/or racing.
