Light Wind Sailing Techniques Clinic | Modern Sailing

Light Wind Sailing Techniques Clinic

One Day, 9am - 3:30pm

Sailing in light wind can be very pleasant and easy, but if you lack the necessary skills, it can be very frustrating and challenging. Gain the skills to be a confident light air sailor and continue sailing through those fair winter days when winds tend to be light. Topics covered include sail selection, control lines, halyard settings, and techniques for maximizing your boat's performance on all points of sail. This clinic will also include an introduction to sailing with an asymmetrical spinnaker.

There are three ways to sign up for this course - by phone (415) 331-8250, email, or by clicking the link below.

Cost for Non Members: 
ASA 101, Basic Keelboat Sailing and ASA 103, Basic Coastal Cruising; or equivalent experience.
Students get ready for a Light Wind Sailing Clinic on San Francisco Bay.

    I've taken two classes at MSS&C and was very happy with the program. This is also a great club with lots of opportunities for camaraderie and practice on the water. The boats in the fleet are fantastic and kept in tip-top shape. I highly recommend for all sailors and would-be sailors!

  • John Clark

    Every aspect of Modern Sailing - training, syllabus, course materials, quality of the boats, quality of the instructors, and the very friendly and helpful staff - exceeded my expectations. Modern Sailing has a first class sailing program in an environment with challenging winds and currents. I look forward to coming back to charter a boat and certainly plan to continue my sailing training.

  • Steve Hood, Basic Coastal Cruising

    I would definitely recommend Modern Sailing to anyone who is interested in learning to sail the right way.
