Our Boats‎ > ‎

Performance Sailing

Once you are proficient in Flying Juniors, we encourage you to start sailing our "performance" boats. These boats will take practice to learn, but they're also a lot fun. There aren't often classes for these boats. Instead, we encourage you to come to WorkParties, Meetings, and Supervised Sailing Hours to get to know experienced members in the club who can teach to set up and sail these.
