Students learn to sail a boat of about 26 ft. in length in light to moderate winds over 2 days - Saturday & Sunday. The course includes an introduction of the basic boat, learning the points of sail, basic sailing techniques, safety and seamanship skills. The class is taught on a Colgate 26 which is easy to use and comfortable for new sailors. Our Colgate's feature spacious cockpits with stainless steel railings and dual controls for the instructor which provides a safe secure platform for beginners. The Colgate 26 is currently used by both US Coast Guard and US Naval Academies to train their new cadets and midshipmen.
(After completion of course, students will receive an American Sailing Association (ASA) Basic Keelboat certification, Skill Building session with an instructor for a ½ day, and a free ½ day charter.)
