ASA 101; Basic Keelboat Sailing Certification (or equivalent)

Course Description:

This is one of a series of Intermediate Keelboat Sailing Seminars offered at Magellan Sailing Center, Inc. It assumes proficiency at the Basic Keelboat Sailing & Motoring levels.

This entire seminar is only 4 hours and there is no classroom required.

You will begin with a review of docking under power (outboard motors) followed by a short review of sail trim & handling.

Then, you will learn the “Quick-Stop” Overboard Recovery technique. This recovery technique has a higher recovery rate than any other recovery technique. You will also cover “Balancing the Helm”. A competent Skipper knows how to perform these skills (this separates you from beginner sailors).

You will review confined quarter sailing skills (docking under sail).
