Keelboat Sailing Instructor Resources

The Club doesn't teach to a standard, and it is different in this way from most other sailing schools. Each instructor needs to figure out how they can best instruct the students they get. This has advantages and disadvantages, of course. The biggest advantage is that for many things, there just isn't one right way to do things. There are several possibilities, and the instructor and student need to figure out what works best for them. Being exposed to different techniques can be confusing, but in the end it can be very liberating.

Here are some documents on instructing that can help. There is also a Slack channel in the Cal Sailing workspace for kelboat instructors to discuss all aspects of instruction. Contact the Rear Commodore to be invited to the channel.
