Probably one of the biggest challenges that the sailors face is to understand the complexity of racing.  This course is designed to equip the sailor with enhanced skills to confidently compete in Club racing in most conditions. 

Sailors Competencies

When I’m on the water I can……

  • Race using basic racing rules
  • Start to use my body weight to help me tack and gybe
  • Raise my centreboard downwind
  • Start a race with flag and sound signals
  • Finish most races that I start
  • Stay close to the start line
  • Identify gusts on the water

And when I’m on shore I can……

  • Identify basic flags and their meanings
  • List common race course configurations
  • Change my sail settings
