Ready to take your sailing a step further? Our redesigned Beyond Basic course is perfect for sailors looking to take their skills to the next level by perfecting advanced sail trim and setting spinnakers.

In this exciting, hands-on, two-day class, you’ll learn; teamwork, sail handling, advanced upwind and downwind sail trim, spinnaker sets, spinnaker jibes, and spinnaker douses. There will be brief classroom lectures on the physics of sailing, lift, twist, and flow, but most of the time will be on the water experiencing speed. All will be done in our signature “Seriously Fun” style – rigorous yet enjoyable.

Courses will be held on our brand new, designed-for-teaching, sport boat: The Caraluna 245 by Tartan.
