ADVANCED  SAILING  SKILLS

"The secret of joy in work is contained in one word - excellence. To know how to do something well is to enjoy it."      Pearl Buck



One of the best rewards of sailing is that it never gets old or worn out. There will always be fresh new challenges and concepts to master. Skills learned in Learn to Sail can now be applied in more extreme conditions and scenarios. There is a high likelihood you will experience some situation that may be beyond your comfort zone.

This four lesson (12 hour course) is designed to prepare you for the statistical inevitability that will come at some point in your sailing career. Check out our unusual offerings.
Advanced lessons require prior certification through Bonneville’s Learn to Sail program. Learn to Sail certification may be challenged by sailing resume, check ride and successful completion of safe boating exam.

  • High winds (threat of micro-burst activity) or high wave conditions which would make sailing unsafe.
