Learn to crew and helm a sailboat.
Challenge yourself to learn the fundamentals of sailing through this inclusive course for active military and veterans.Over this weekend course you will develop the fundamental keelboat crew sailing skills to sail in moderate daytime conditions through both ashore and on-the-water instruction. We sail the Club's SanJuan 21 keelboats.
By the end of the weekend, you will have learned and applied the fundamental sailing theory to successfully crew and manage a sailboat on the water.

Each sailboat has an experienced sailor as your personal onboard coach working with three military community participants. Participants sail the boat, and the coach is with you to guide you through applying sailing theory and seamanship skills.
This is an inclusive program open to all genders, ages, and abilities.
