Our Boats‎ > ‎

Beginner Sailing

We encourage all of our members to begin learning to sail on Dinghies, which are small 1-2 person boats by taking our classes. We teach our "SingleHanded" (1 person/boat) classes in Lasers or Bravos. We teach our "DoubleHanded" (2 person/boat) classes in Flying Juniors.

Flying Junior
The bravo is a 12 foot catamaran that is very simple to rig. It is built to be sailed by 1-2 people, and is very stable.  These can be sailed with a Bravo Rating. A Laser is a 13 foot boat designed to be sailed by one person. It is fast and fun to sail. Lasers are the majority of our "singlehanded" fleet. These can be sailed with a Single Handed Novice Rating. The Flying Junior is a 13 foot boat designed for 2 people. FJ's are the majority of our "doublehanded" fleet.  These can be sailed with a Double Handed Novice rating

Flying Scot

   flying scotThe Flying Scot is a 'daysailer' which means it is great to take a group of friends for a sail! It is 19 feet long and it can fit up to 5 people. It is stable and easy to rig, and is a common boat for teaching in other fleets. You can always ask a chief or Ratings Examiner how to rig it, especially during Supervised Sailing Hours! We have one in our fleet. It can be sailed with a Double Handed Novice rating.
