Fast Track Sailing Courses are intensive sessions designed to teach you the skills required for a Dinghy Junior rating. The Fast Tracks typically consist of 5 consecutive evenings (usually 5-8pm) of sailing lessons, running from Monday to Friday nights, with one-on-two instruction. As in other sports, intensive instruction will improve your skills rapidly. You'll be on the water for over two hours each session, have a debrief with your instructor afterwards, sharing food and drinks.
This year, we are adding a special women only Fast Track week. If learning from women instructors in a women centric environment is of particular interest, make sure to sign up for that session.
Scroll through the photos above to get an idea of what it's like or read a blog post about the experience from a past Fast Track student.
5 session with 80 students, and 312 volunteer days as instructors, testers, cooks, cleanup crew, and other things. Lots of Novice and Junior ratings earned, but more importantly, greatly improved sailing skills after 5 days of intensive instruction.
Thanks to all who helped, and we are already thinking about next year. As usual, we will start in early May and go through the end of August. And we are thinking about something special this time.
Come back here in late February to see the details of the 2024 Fast Track Program. It will also be announced on the Cal Sailing Announcements List
