Heavy Weather Sailing Clinic | Modern Sailing

Heavy Weather Sailing Clinic

One Day, 9am - 3:30pm

The more you sail in winter or make long passages, the more likely it becomes that you’ll eventually encounter foul weather. This one-day clinic will introduce you to heavy weather sailing equipment, preparation, and techniques. Taught aboard our Spencer 44 Coho II, your instructor will cover topics such as personal safety equipment, high wind line handling techniques, setting up storm sails and running rigging, types of drogues and sea anchors, and steering in large following seas. Heavy weather on the day of the clinic is not guaranteed.

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

Cost for Members: 
$275
Cost for Non Members: 
$330
Prerequisites: 
ASA 101, Basic Keelboat Sailing; ASA 103, Basic Coastal Cruising; and ASA 104, Bareboat Cruising; or equivalent experience.

Testimonials

  • Trudy Flores

    Captain Jeff Cathers is really cool. I had such a great time on the Farallones Day Trip. It was actually my very best day of 2020. Thank you so much for coordinating the trip.

  • 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.

  • John Kipping

    The meeting room was quite adequate and the location most convenient, but the course outline and instruction were outstanding. Modern Sailing is fortunate to have such a well organized instructor in Mr. Stan Lander who teaches very well from a rich professional background. Mr. Lander was generous with his time and patiently in helping students who needed more attention or time in understanding various aspects of the curriculum.
