Whether your goal is to sail fast around a race course or to achieve the perfect spinnaker run home from The Graves, Advanced Keelboat is the course for you.  This course is taught in a J/22, a performance boat designed for speed and grace, by our top instructors.  If you are working on a Green Flag rating, preparing for a J/22 checkout, or are interested in getting into racing, Advanced Keelboat can help you work toward your goals- just let your instructor know what you'd like to focus on.

Advanced Keelboat covers: 

  • The finer points of boat handling: how to use crew weight to your advantage, reduce rudder drag, roll tack and jibe, etc.
  • Advanced sail trim: how and when to use the vang, outhaul, Cunningham, traveler, backstay, and other sail controls to determine the shape and maximize the performance of your sails.
  • All you need to know to use a spinnaker well: rigging, sets, jibes, douses, and proper trim.
  • A review of the basics and more advanced techniques, including docking, anchoring, crew overboard recovery, and heavy weather sailing.
