About Intermediate Windsurfing:

Intermediate windsurfing lessons aim to help you sail faster, more efficiently, and to maneuver and turn confidently on the water.  This course covers:

  • Gybe and (review of) tack.
  • Selecting appropriate windsurfing boards and sails for the conditions.
  • Club procedures and policies including intermediate windsurfing zone, maximum wind speeds for intermediate windsurfing, signing out, managing, and returning gear at Jericho.
  • Using the harness (saves your arms).
  • Beach start (helps prepare you to learn water starts).

To pass the course, your instructor must feel confident in your ability to do the following:

  • Take proper care of the lighter and more delicate intermediate equipment in a safe manner.
  • Know right-of-way, show awareness of your surroundings on the water, avoid obstacles and stay within the intermediate area (orange buoys).
  • Select appropriate gear for the conditions.
  • Be able to self-rescue back to shore at any point.

For you to pass this course, your instructor must see that you can demonstrate all of the above and they must feel confident that you can safely launch and return to shore at Jericho.

Prerequisites: Beginner Windsurfing (L1)
