Prerequisites:

ASA 101; Basic Keelboat Sailing Certification (or equivalent)

Course Description:

This is one of a series of Intermediate Keelboat Sailing workshops offered at Sail Dallas.  It assumes some level of proficiency at the Basic Keelboat Sailing & Motoring levels.

This entire workshop is onboard (no classroom) and is only 4 hours.

THIS IS THE ONE YOU’VE THOUGHT ABOUT (HAVEN’T YOU!)! If you sail long enough, you will eventually find yourself facing Mother Nature with your sailing skills as your defense. You will find out if your training paid off! A truly competent skipper knows how to handle this. This is where learning it right pays off in ways only afterthought can truly appreciate!

You will learn how and when to Heave-To (a storm survival skill). You will learn how to Reef (and how to tell precisely WHEN you should reef!). We will cover sailing techniques for heavy wind …and the waves that accompany them.
