Advanced Sailing Lessons

Note: to support your training, check out our Learning Resources for Advanced Sailing

Advanced 1 Lessons ($180)

Prerequisites: Intermediate Sailing

Introduction to skiff sailing on the RS500, a faster and less stable boat than the intermediate boats, which makes everything more exciting. Learn more advanced sail trimming, racing techniques, trapezing, and rudderless sailing. This course does not include learning to fly the spinnaker.

Advanced 2 Lessons ($180)

Prerequisites: Advanced 1 Sailing

Learn to trapeze and use the spinnaker on the RS500. Learn proper trapezing technique, how to hoist and douse the spinnaker and how to gybe with the spinnaker up. Flying a spinnaker is a truly exciting experience for sailors looking for a thrill and wanting to sail at high speeds.

Advanced 3 (mentoring only)

Prerequisites: Advanced 2 Sailing

The RS800 is the big brother of the RS500. With a spinnaker, double trapeze and hiking-wings, this is an exhilarating boat to sail. It comes with a steep learning curve but offers the kind of high performance skiff sailing many sailors dream about. We no longer offer Advanced 3 lessons; get certified on the RS800 through the mentoring program.
