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.
