    We're excited to announce the addition of a Catalina 27 to our sailing school fleet as the result of a generous donation. The Catalina 27 will be used in our Day Sailor Course.  Larger, more capable, and better equipped, the Catalina 27 will make a great learning platform for those who want to learn how to sail a larger boat.
