CLCSF offers Beginner and Intermediate Adult Sailing courses throughout the sailing season. Anyone 18 and older, regardless of experience, can sign up to learn the basics and/or brush up on their skills in our Z420s. Start off in one of our 2-person boats and learn rigging & derigging, terminology of the boat, basics of sailing and maneuvering, right of way and reading direction on the water, and much more.
