If you like the thrill of being close to the water, going fast, getting wet, and making quick maneuvers, you’ll want to jump into this class. Over the course of this class, we’ll cover everything you need to know to get out on the bay in a dinghy, and you are almost guaranteed to become immediately addicted.┬áThe teacher to student ratio in this 12-hour class is 1 to 4, so you’ll get plenty of focused attention from our experienced instructor.

See our sailing fleet here to learn more about the dinghies we use in this class. All participants will experience sailing in larger dinghies (with a mainsail in a jib) as both skipper and crew member. Participants will also have the option to singlehand (sail solo) in a Laser or Sunfish. This class includes a sailing assessment at the end of the course to determine sailboat rental eligibility (solo, with crew, green wind only, green & yellow wind).
