This course is designed for those with little or no sailing experience who want to learn how to sail on larger more stable Keelboats. It can also serve as a refresher course for those who have not recently sailed. The 12 hour course covers boating safety, knots, rigging and sailing theory. On the water skills such as docking, man overboard recovery, and sail trim will be taught on the Holder 20 Keelboats. The skills learned in this class are similar to those learned in the Basic Sailing class. The main difference is that the keelboat (Holder 20) is a larger, more stable boat, able to hold more people and much less likely to capsize than the dinghies. There is no capsizing drill required for this class. Upon successful completion of this course graduates will be eligible to rent the Holder 20 and join the Sacramento State Aquatic Center Sailing Membership. This class follows the guidelines set by US Sailing.

The book used for this course if the Basic Keelboat book (IBSN: 978-1938915062). The book is included in the cost of the class. Picking up your book early is recommened but not required.
