Fast Track 2024

Cal Sailing Junior Dinghy Fast Track Program

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.

Fast Track weeks fill up very quickly, so make sure to signup and complete the required prerequisited as soon as possible but well before the week.

Requirements before you sign up

  • Fast Track is for CSC members only. Become a member to sign up.
  • Signup is open now for all Fast Tracks this coming summer. Signup closes the Sunday a week before the session starts
  • Each session has prerequisites. You can sign up without having completed the prerequisites, but you must complete them in order to be accepted into the session. prerequisites may vary by session but will always include
    • Passing the Junior Written Exam
    • Passing the Rigging Test
    • Getting comfortable with basic boat handling, including tacks and gybes, either from lessons or from prior experience. Typically taking 3 or 4 lessons provides this.
  • Students are usually accepted based on prerequisite completion date, so get your prerequisites done as soon as possible, at least several weeks before the Fast Track you want to join
  • You must commit to attending all 5 session days. If you get a Junior rating before the end of the session, you agree to return to teach others.
