Intermediate Learn-to Sail

Perfect for sailors with 1-2 years of fundamental sailing experience seeking to advance their skills. Progression into this class is at the discretion of our instructors and director, with consideration given to age and weight.


In this class, sailors transition from partnered to solo sailing in Optis, learning the fundamentals of single-handed sailing.  Progressing from beginner to intermediate levels, students receive personalized instruction in sail trim, body positioning, tiller use, and essential maneuvers like tacking, gybing, and self-rescue. Our supportive environment encourages camaraderie and teamwork as students advance to larger, more technical boats like double-handed 420s or single-handed Lasers. They learn rigging, basic boat handling, seamanship, and rules of the road, with opportunities to explore advanced techniques such as trapeze use and spinnaker handling. Throughout the class, sailors are introduced to racing techniques and terminology to gauge their interest in competitive sailing. The instructors and director assess each sailor's skills and progress before considering advancement to the Race Team or Adventure Sailing. While successful completion of the Intermediate Class is typically required for advancement, exceptions may be made based on individual performance and readiness.

Intermediate Class Cost: $625/sailor
