Dinghy sailing



  • Keelboat lessons are offered year round, often on Wednesday evenings, but also at other times. They are announced on Slack and the Announcements list. You must be a Junior Skipper to take keelboat lessons. Basic keelboat instruction outline is here, and this progression will prepare you for the advanced training necessary for the keelboat senior rating.
  • Berkeley Reef. Sheldon Coad took these photos with the help of Bobby Arthurs, and the club skiff. They circled the Reef and took photos in several directions. Pretty impressive when you see it, and pretty dangerous when you can't.
  • Consult the new manual on keelboat outboard motors.

Kayak and SUPs

A limited number of sit-on-top kayaks and stand-up paddleboards (SUPs) are now available for member use. No rating is required, but Day Leader approval is. This is a lower-wind activity, so the Day Leader may restrict use to the Novice Area or not allow it at all.

Want to get a rating/sign-off but don't know who can do it?
