This is a course for sailors who have completed their introductory lessons and wish to find out what racing is about. You will get both classroom and on the water instruction. There’ll be an introduction to types of courses, the basic rules, and tips on boat speed. If you have never raced but would like to join the fun, this is the course for you.
