About Intermediate Sailing:

This class is for sailors who have a good handle on the basics and would like to gain access to our Race rigged Laser fleet.   Jericho hosts races on Sunday afternoons and Tuesday evenings.  The Laser has a long standing racing class that is quite active and exciting worldwide.  They are also the only single handed boat in the fleet. 

The expectation is that you have a good handle on sailing and have had at least a summer sailing on some type of skiff.  If you can't tie a bowline, are unsure of right of way rules out on the water, or feel you don't control your boat during a tack or a gybe you may want to consider the beginners class. 

If you are unsure if this is the right class for you feel free to contact the head instructor (headinstructor@ubcsailing.org).

Prerequisites: 

Be comfortable as a skipper on a double-handed boat when doing the following in up to 15 knots of wind:

  • launching from the beach
  • tacking
  • gybing
  • sail trimming when heading up and when bearing off
  • landing at the beach
  • capsize recovery

In addition, you must feel comfortable with the following:

  • Tying basic knots 
  • Knowing how to read wind and tide predictions. 
  • Know all of the basic names for parts of a two person skiff. 
  • Know right of way rules for both sail and power boats.
