Learn to sail with world class championship sailing instructors. The first of two classes turns the novice into competent sailors with a firm foundation in sailing fundamentals in a 3-day Basic Keelboat 1 class – teaching the basics of sailing and boat handling.
The US Sailing curriculum then progresses into an additional 3-day Basic Keelboat 2 course which focuses on the student’s ability to handle the boat in a variety of conditions and coordinate crew for both efficient sailing and safety. Students practice their new skills extensively on the water throughout the duration of each course.
You can be certified to sail solo in two long weekends spent on Charleston’s harbor. Keelboat 1 and Keelboat 2 classes are 3-days each and can also be combined.
