RECREATIONAL RACE CLINIC

The Beginning Race Clinic practices during a regatta on San Francisco Bay. This photo is of the stern of the boat with three team members concentrating on their jobs.

This multi-day race clinic provides racers with introductory training in the fundamentals of racing: tides and currents, sail trim, basic tactics, starts, rounding marks, and basic spinnaker training. Graduates have the opportunity to race with local yacht clubs. During the races, participants rotate through different roles (skipper, main sail trimmer, jib trimmer, tactician) in order to gain skills and confidence in each role.

 

There are four modules to the clinic:

  • Fundamentals Classroom Session
  • Sail Trim
  • Starts and Marks
  • Spinnaker Training

 

The clinic is held multiple times throughout the year: Spring, Summer and Fall.

Testimonials

  • Mike, Santa Rosa, California

    All of the courses and my instructors (JT and Stan) were extremely professional and full of knowledge and experience. I found I was able to learn from their experiences beyond the scope of the courses, and look forward to future opportunities to do so. I would highly recommend Modern Sailing to anyone.

  • Esther C

    I took ASA 101 with them recently. They have the best customer service I've ever seen! I mistyped my address when I signed up online so didn't receive the textbook. I called and the lady immediately sent me another copy! Everyone at the club is super friendly.

  • 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.
