Adult Daysailer Level 2

Adult Daysailer Level 2 is taught at Saylorville Lake on our Catalina 27. This course is offered weekly in the evening for people who have completed our Level 1 course and are interested in continuing to build their confidence and ability on a large daysailer. Our boat is conveniently docked in a slip at Saylorville Marina.

You will continue to develop your theoretical understanding of the boat, sail trim, weather, and wind. You will also continue to develop your boat handling skills including maneuvering under power, proper adjustment of sail controls, tactical awareness of wind shifts, other boats, and laylines.

Upon completion of this course the student will be able to confidently skipper, crew, or race a similarly sized boat. All classes are taught by certified US Sailing instructors.
