Advanced Sportboat Clinic

Our Berkeley Advanced Sportboat Clinic is for qualified sailors to stretch and expand their boat-handling skills to meet and manage unexpected challenges and to lay the foundation for competitive and high-performance sailing. A major element of this 2-day clinic is that we do not use the engine; we challenge students to operate and control the boat safely, elegantly, and confidently in difficult situations under sail.


  → Blindfolded sailing
  → Slalom courses
  → Sailing backwards
  → Anchoring under sail
  → Docking under sail

Master your boat handling under sail! You know the basics; let's work on finesse -- without an engine!

Clinic Duration: 2 days, 9:00am - 4:30pm

Cost for Members: 
Cost for Non Members: 
Sportboat Fleet Rating and three Sportboat charters as skipper of record.

    The office staff was very accommodating in meeting my availability.

    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!

    We just took our ASA 106 at a school in Rhode Island as we prepare for 6 months of cruising in the Caribbean. The class was great, but more than anything it made us really appreciate the quality of teaching and rigor at Modern Sailing. Even though we were the newest to sailing, the group seemed to think that we had the best fundamentals. We felt very well prepared and we see why Modern Sailing has the reputation it does.
