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

  • Ray Arceneaux

    The vessel was clean and in fine condition - very nice boat for training, well-equipped.

  • Sara Jane G.

    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.
