  • Applying your existing sailing skills and knowledge to a vessel that is bigger, faster, and has a longer glide zone than a Rhodes 19.
  • An introduction to crew roles and how to teach crew to assist a skipper.


  • Learn to Sail (or similar experience)

Meet the J80 is a one-day clinic that runs on Saturdays from 10:00AM – 4:30PM with a 30 minute lunch break.

Things to note:

Meet the J80 is a 6-hour introductory clinic and is not designed to replace our Performance clinics, in which we encourage sailors to enroll to build more advanced skills. A J80 membership is not required to participate, but membership and a separately scheduled J80 checkout would be necessary to gain access to the J80 fleet outside of class hours.
