Hello Friends and Alumni –
Wow, so much is happening, I’m not sure where to start. After a full winter, our Puerto Vallarta Sailing Center is still going strong. Spring breakers and vacationers of all sorts are currently taking advantage of wonderful weather. We are in PV thru June so there is still time to book your sailing class or sailing charter! Meanwhile, the minds of many in the Bay Area are clearly turning to spring sailing, and we have all manners of events coming up at our San Francisco Sailing School and Sailing Club….
J World has a selection of great springtime cruising classes coming up. These courses are extremely comprehensive, and packed with information and experiences. Low student-to-instructor ratios insure you will get a lot of personal attention. The following courses still have availability:

Racing Weeks (North and South)
Our renowned racing classes are running in Puerto Vallarta on March 31, and in San Francisco April 28 and May 19. These courses cover everything from sail trim and boat-handling to rules and tactics. Get faster, sail smarter, win races. Regardless of what type of boat you sail and where you sail it, this class will send you home ready to take on all comers Intro and Advanced
Private Instruction
J World Instructors are always available for private coaching and instruction. We have top level racing coaches who can provide valuable insights to your trim, technique, and teamwork. Additionally, our private programs for boat owners have been used by boat brokers, boat builders, and insurance companies to train and educate both new and experienced sailors to the techniques and skills necessary for the efficient and safe operation of their vessels. Finally, when you are ready to stretch your legs and head offshore for the first time, consider taking a J World instructor on the passage. Learn good habits from the start, and have an enjoyable and safe passage!
All the best,
Wayne Zittel
