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

This skill level is a required prior to renting our J-24’s. Of course, if you already have the skills you can challenge the course.

A detailed knowledge of rigging a sailboat handling the boat under power (outboard motor) should be standard knowledge of a competent skipper.  Adding this to your knowledge base can easily pay for itself in avoiding just one unfortunate docking encounter.

Knowledge & skills include:  Local Knowledge of Lake Lewisville, Rental Rules & Restrictions, Complete Rigging & Un-Rigging of the J-24, and Docking under Power.
