Our Introduction to Dinghy 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 the boat, and capsize recovery.
Dinghies are a fast-paced wind powered boat, they traditionally have a drop down centerboard that is not weighted which allows the boat to capsize under extreme conditions. This class is great for beginner sailors that are willing to get wet.
