Advanced Sailing is serious fun, solo sailing off the beach in our fleet of high-performance daggerboard Zests. They are a bit more demanding and will take your skills to a new level. It is a tremendous confidence builder.

You will learn about hydrodynamics and the hull, minimizing resistance, handling wind shifts, helm imbalances, roll-tacking, roll jibing, efficient hiking, and adjusting your trim and helmsmanship for pointing and footing.

In addition to round-the-buoys drills, in Advanced Sailing you’ll also learn some of the fundamentals of fleet racing.

Advanced Sailing is accompanied by the final student manual in our sequential textbook series.

Same as Basic and Intermediate Sailing, it is a 12-hour course, 3-hours per day, scheduled on back-to-back summer weekends to accommodate busy working adults.
