Depending on previous theoretical and practical experience, sailing instruction lasts about 12-15 hours. The objectives of instruction are to teach the student to sail so that he or she can: 

  • Correctly and safely operate the sail. 
  • Independently and confidently sail in the learning zone and return to the shore at the starting point with wind speeds up to 3 barometers (up to 5.4 meters/second). 

After 12-15 hours of instruction the student will have the opportunity to complete the sailing exam. After completing instruction it is highly recommended that students spend at least 15 (a minimum of 10) hours sailing on the catamaran with an instructor’s supervision to ensure confidence and safety. These hours are required as part of the sailing license program.
