Basic Keelboat Certification

You will learn the fundamental principles of safe, confident daysailing on a keelboat ranging from 18 to 27 feet in length in light to moderate winds. Learn the basics while enjoying a beautiful day on the water. Students will see their confidence rise from day one to that of a competent sailor by the end of the course.

Challenge the course - A certification candidate may, with previous experience and competency, challenge the required prerequisite levels by completing the written and practical examinations for each required level.  Essentially, you will be taken for an on-the-water evaluation for the highest level of certification you are challenging.  Pass the practical and then take the exam for the appropriate certification levels.
