In our Elements II course, students who have some prior small-boat sailing experience will have the chance to refresh their own “sea sense” and fine-tune their boating skills. You will work toward handling our vessels competently and confidently. Solo sailing will be encouraged, and a variety of more challenging tactical/navigational exercises will be presented. If you’re a graduate of Elements I, this is the perfect second step in your mastery of sailing. Essentially, this course is about sailing, sailing, and more sailing!
Becoming a sailor takes time (more than one sailing course, we can promise), and it take work. To ensure that you not find yourself “in over your head” in our ELEMENTS II course, we ask that you have recently completed our ELEMENTS I course, or have equivalent experience: you should feel reasonably comfortable sailing a small boat from a mooring or dock, and returning her safely, using crew to help. Improving your sailing skills will ultimately increase your enjoyment of the sport. If you have any questions regarding your abilities, please give us a call.
Who is this course best suited for?
This course is appropriate for students with some knowledge and experience. Basic knowledge and ability to sail is required for most waterfront courses.
This course involves a moderate level of activity throughout the week including: having adequate balance and agility to get in and out of boats on a moving float or other boats.
