Learn To Sail - Course Description
LTS: Learn to Sail in Four Days
The Learn to Sail Class from J World Sailing School and Club is designed to provide the essential foundation of sailing skills. This class is conducted at our San Francisco Bay Sailing School, our San Diego Sailing office, and our Puerto Vallarta Sailing Center.
Offered as a four day (Monday-Thursday) sailing course, or as a two-weekend learn to sail class, this course gets the complete beginner started out right, or builds upon previous experience. Using the modern J/80 as our teaching platform, we begin on Monday with basic boat-handling and terminology, and progress rapidly through an extensive curriculum.
This course is extremely comprehensive. We spend more time on the water in one day than many schools do in an entire class... we believe strongly that the best way to learn how to sail is by actually sailing! And with a maximum of four sailors per boat (and the courses often run with fewer), all attendees are certain to receive plenty of personal attention. Participants gain extensive hand-on experience, building the sailing skills and knowledge to pursue sailing endeavors on their own, with confidence.
Really Learn to Sail: Confidence through Competence
Without question, this is the ultimate course for learning how to sail. If you are going to invest the time and the money, make sure you get the most of both, so that you can get the most out of sailing. Our J World curriculum, continually refined over 30 years of teaching sailors, far exceeds any other schools' or organizations' criteria for 'basic' level sailing courses. We'll readily admit that there are sailing programs which profess to offer effective learn to sail courses and take less time, and cost less money. But you get what you pay for, and we will put our sailing instructors, boats, and curriculum up against any in the world.
Topics in the Learn to Sail class include:
Our ultimate goal in
the Learn to Sail class is that by the final day of class, each student feels competent skippering
a small keelboat without instructor input. If the midweek program
doesn't fit into your schedule check out our
Sail in 2 Weekends course.
